The first book in the series starts off dark. There's child molestation, murder, and an overall feeling of despair and surrender to everything evil inside men's hearts. While some might not be prepared for how far the author goes, the setting is necessary for Kylar's development, as well at he redemptive themes that become far more prevalent in books two and three.
Despite Kylar's random mood swings, he was an overall enjoyable main character. Like Durzo, he is a killer at the top of his game. The special powers he inherits halfway through the first book are both over the top and yet consistently controlled. It may feel like the author is cheating, but at the same time, I know he's not. Don't read The Night Angel Trilogy expecting anything mundane. Mr. Weeks wants to kill gods, destroy cities, and have his characters play with artifacts older than entire civilizations. It gets a little overwhelming having ten different world-destroying creatures, weapons, and artifacts all being swapped, stolen, and revealed, but by the third book things calm down and start making sense.
Speaking of making sense, Mr. Weeks is not the best at introducing characters you don't know. There are plenty of times I'd be reading, start a new chapter, and then wonder if I had skipped a part somewhere along the line.Read more ›
Now I do have a few complaints. If you're prone to judge a book by its cover, these covers are very misleading. Kylar, the main character, is not how the covers portray him. (Assuming the guy on the covers is Kylar). See in the story there are people with magical powers and those without. Those who can use magic are called "Wetboys", and those who cannot are called "Assassins". The guy on the cover appears to be an Assassin. I can't help but wonder if they were trying to capitalize on the "Assassin's Creed" look. "Wetboys" dress in different colors.
Another minor complaint is that the final book almost feels as if it were rushed. In other words, their could have been a fourth book and all would have been fine. However there are three and the final battle and all that leads up to it is rushed. There are also a few characters that are forgotten. They are not major characters however, they are characters that I would have liked to see get their comeuppance.
Once again, minor complaints aside, if you like Fantasy than get these books. You will not regret it.
I just wanted to add that this series does have some very strong violence. I was reading through the comments and one of them brings up just how much violence is actually in the first book alone.Read more ›
I'd also like to see if domesticity with Duchess Kirena is everything Durzo (or Dehvri now) hopes it will be.
I can see now where he might be going with his new Lightbringer books. If I had read this trilogy first I might not have been so utterly lost in Black Prism. It made little to no sense to me at all. Magic as color - the ka'kira in Night Angel and the Luxin in Black Prism - the color makes the wielder who he is.
All in all I highly recommend the Night Angel series to those who love fantasy.
