Publisher Description

New York Times bestseller
The Broken Eye continues the spectacular Lightbringer series from the New York Times bestselling author of The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife.

As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who can still end a civil war before it engulfs the known world. But Gavin Guile has been captured by an old enemy and enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism--he can't use magic at all.

Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will face a master of shadows as his grandfather moves to choose a new Prism and put himself in power. With Teia and Karris, Kip will have to use all his wits to survive a secret war between noble houses, religious factions, rebels, and an ascendant order of hidden assassins called The Broken Eye.

Love the book / Love the Series

After seeing 'The Broken Eye' on the Amazon Best of 2014 list, and having not read any of Bremt Weeks books, I took a leap of faith and I started at the first book of the series. Man O' man can I truly say that I'm glad I did.

The books aren't perfect- I suppose no author is- but the authors growth in book after book is apparent. I've read, in this, that many have found The Broken Eye as the weakest- or a let down/ cash cow. I humbly disagree.

While this book doesn't have the persistent battle themes of the second book, or awesomeness of Gavin in book one- it does pivot the series to the series own namesake (aka Lightbringer); it expands Teias character tremendously and it (I believe) throws a feint at the reader (who's the primary nemesis?)....

However, plot points are important- the authors mastery of prose hums with vibrancy here: Gavin's dream sequences; Kip in the forest (early); Kip in Big Jasper (late).... These are what making the book a lasting work: and one which has me looking forward to book 4.

Very highly recommended to Jordan / Sanderson / Epic Fantasy fans.

The Broken Eye was a hard read. The downfall, abuse and helpless of Gavin is a hard way read. At times it was horrifying. I understand that sometimes a character has to suffer but I never seen a main character humbled as bad as Gavin. He was such a great character and he was backburned. The best part is Teia growth and story. All the main characters experience suffering but not as much as Gavin and Tea. One of the best things about this book was the lack of Liv. I hate her bitter whining traitorous self. Also something I don’t get is why Kip is still described as fat/cubby. It’s not realistic or believable that with all the training and exercise he get he’ll be still fat. I’ll would give 5 stars but the treatment of Gavin is too much and made me fume.

Broken eye

The first two books in the series were entertaining. The third was very hard to follow, a bit boring. Hopefully the fourth will mimic the first two.
