A Night Angel Novella
Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks' New York Times bestselling Night Angel trilogy.
"I got a bit of prophecy," the old assassin said. "Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you're here, I see they're all you. Durzo Blint."
Durzo Blint? Gaelan had never even heard the name.
Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He's also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he's worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he's become a hero, his very names passing into legend: Acaelus Thorne, Yric the Black, Hrothan Steelbender, Tal Drakkan, Rebus Nimble.
But when Gaelan must take a job hunting down the world's finest assassins for the beautiful courtesan-and-crimelord Gwinvere Kirena, what he finds may destroy everything he's ever believed in.

Don't buy it!
Before buying this I read the reviews and decided to try the sample to see if it is worth it. By the end of the sample I was really pleased with the book and decided to buy it to read the rest.
When I opened the book to the page the sample ended on I turned over and that was it. There was nothing else to the book. The rest of it was dedicated to the first chapter of Brent Weeks newest trilogy.
So I pretty much just bought something I can get in the sample of the book... Other then this it was a really good read and brought back good memories from the old series. I would advise if you want to read it just read the sample and trust me that is the whole of the book!
Good to know more about the man but was really sort ... I wanted to know about him and the dragon haha.... Well it does say it's about blint not all his other life's ..... Just need more haha
Not what I expected. It felt rushed and didn't satisfy my massive curiosity about Durzo's history. Although I have to say I loved it and my only disappointment was that it wasn't longer.
