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 Book.

I have mostly enjoyed the lightbringer series up until now and was exciting to pick this up.

And I have to say after finishing this listen I'm left conflicted. It's not a complete filler book, and there's some interesting revelations.

However unfortunately those are few and far between. Everything relevant could easily have been summed up in a couple chapters.

Probably 80% consists of dialog between 2 or more characters, often with conflicting view points. It's literally chapter after chapter after chapter of this, people "squaring off" with talking back and forth.

So much so that I have the say the pacing really suffers, and remains mostly uninteresting, but I was never overly bored either.

Nothing is this book is griping, intense or all that exciting, it sort of just plods along chapter after chapter.

Hard one to recommend. But I will say if you desperately need something to listen to pass the time, and like the series, this will just be "ok"
