The Blinding Knife

The Blinding Knife

The second book in the Lightbringer series, the blockbuster fantasy epic from international bestseller Brent Weeks

Gavin Guile is dying.

He’d thought he had five years left – now he’s got less than one. With fifty thousand refugees, a bastard son and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin’s got problems on every side.

As he loses control, the world’s magic runs wild, threatening to destroy the Seven Satrapies. The old gods are being reborn and their army of colour wights is unstoppable.

The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole sixteen years ago.

‘Brent Weeks is so good it’s beginning to tick me off’ Peter V. Brett

‘Weeks has a style of immediacy and detail that pulls the reader relentlessly into the story. He doesn’t allow you to look away’ Robin Hobb

‘I was mesmerised from start to finish. Unforgettable characters, a plot that kept me guessing, non-stop action and the kind of in-depth storytelling that makes me admire a writers’ work’ Terry Brooks

‘Weeks has truly cemented his place among the great epic fantasy writers of our time’ British Fantasy Society
