A magnum opus
I started the series with a small interest, a coming of age story with a few mysteries. Mysteries that swirled around the ankles and deepened ; watching Week’s *talent* for sledgehammer revelations grow. This book leaves a satisfying taste after a full course. I think Kip and Kyler would have been good friends and would have a lot to learn from one another.
TLDR please read this series, you won’t regret it.
Protracted and disappointing
I expected some great ah-hah and oh wow moments that revealed mysteries and took the separate plot threads and tied them neatly together...but instead I got a bunch of deus ex machina plot devices and a lot of drawn out character self-discovery.
The concept of this series and magic system was good. Like the Night Angel series, the dialogue and character development has always seemed like it was written by a teenage boy but the concepts, the magic, and the building out of the story to an epic scale has always made up for those shortfalls until this last book.
For the fifth book of a five book series, I also expected more action than the other books and I got significantly less.
Meh-Ok but not worth the wait!
This was a ok finale to the Lightbringer series. It took a while for the story to get started as the first third of the book was a bunch of psycho-babble musings by some of the characters. The Gavin/Orholam thread of the story was great and I liked the background story of Andross Guile. Overall, it was good but I expected better specifically due to the long wait that Weeks forced his fans to endure.
