Publisher's Summary

Gavin Guile is dying.
He'd thought he had five years left - now he has less than one. With 50,0000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

Much Better

Book 2 of the black prism series is great. it continues with the story nicely allowing you to see how each character develops as it moves. it makes you want to know what will happen next.

Now as for the reader, Simon Vance is a VAST improvement than the reader for book 1, Cristofer Jean. Simon made listening to the book a great pleasure. he made the characters identifiable, unlike Jean whom made Kip sound like a whinny brat and Gavin sound like Keanu Reeves.

I do like like this book and can't wait for the next. I hope that Simon Vance will stay as the reader for book 3

Awesome story vastly improved by superior narrator

Simon Vance really brought this story to life for me. I found myself caring about the characters, and grasping the concept of the magic system better, and even understanding the political nuances better than I had when listening to book #1.

Even better, I'm left frothing at the mouth for the next installment of the series! As long as Vance is still narrating!

And I really hope that they manage to re-record book #1 with Vance as the narrator!
