Publisher's Summary

The nail-biting continuation of the Lightbringer series from New York Times best seller Brent Weeks.
When does an empire fall?
The Seven Satrapies have collapsed into four - and those are falling before the White King's armies.
Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken, and trapped in a prison crafted by his own hands to hold a great magical genius. But Gavin has no magic at all. Worse, in this prison Gavin may not be alone.
Kip Guile will make a last desperate attempt to stop the White King's growing horde. Karris White attempts to knit together an empire falling apart, helped only by her murderous and possibly treasonous father-in-law, Andross Guile.
Meanwhile Teia's new talents will find a darker use - and the cost might be too much to bear. Together they will fight to prevent a tainted empire from becoming something even worse.

Filler novel

Marked release date on calendar. Sad that this was a filler novel. No emotional victories small or large, just grinding, plodding, story. This book contains the depth and emotional weight of a single chapter from the other books in the series. Seems like the author wants to drag out the story of such a beautiful story arc. Beyond impressed with the series until now. May try one more but depends on how long until release.

A bit disappointed...

I have been a huge fan of Brent Weeks; however, this book was more of a filler and platform to discuss a medical condition. Half the book is about the characters self doubts and recrimination. The amount the actual story progressed could have been done in a two chapter short story. I will still read the next one when it's released because I want to finish the story but I am truly disappointed. This terrible book in a great series reminds me of George RR Martins "A Feast for Crows" where the amount of progress to the story line could have been summed up in a few pages instead of more than 700.
