First book review: Night Angel trilogy

One thing I am passionate about is reading. I spend at least 45min+ in Waterstones. I buy at 2 books at a time, in case I finish one before I can get another one. I’ve either got a book or my kindle in my bag.

Now my bookshelf varies in genre. My favorite is fantasy fiction. I love the way an author can create worlds that do not abide by our laws of physics and nature. If they wanted to create a new form of magic (like in Mistborn series, which I will discuss in a later post) they can. Fantasy creatures like dragons could soar a sky, Elves roam the forest and magicians could travel to other dimensions. I have started to spread out into other genres such as crime, thrillers, romantic comedies, Horror, and sci-fi.

One day… I dream to have a room with wall to wall and floor to ceiling bookcases in my future home. Haaaaa…. one day!

Let us start with my first book recommendation, The Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks. It is my absolute favorite. I was mesmerized from book one and even named my dog after the main character. The story is about a young orphan name Azoth who lives in the slums. Daily life is a struggle living under the thumb of a twisted man along with many other orphans.  Azoth manages to convince Durzo, a legendary assassin into accepting him as an apprentice and eventually changes his name to Kylar. He develops into a somewhat anti-hero. His actions are based on what he and his master are hired to do but soon he becomes involved in something a lot grander than he ever imagined. Over the books we see him grow, fall in love and become the amazing assassin he was destined to be. Jam-packed with action and an incredible story. The book keeps you engulfed in its world. Brent Weeks introduces a few different forms of magic. I have to say one in particular, without giving away possible spoilers, is epic!!

The author introduces you to many characters, each with their own troubled backstory and we learn more about each of them. Kylar’s world is rich in magic and history.

I would defiantly recommend this book series to anyone. I was so sad to finish the third book. The story had me with my nose in the book, wanting to find out what happened next. At the same time wishing the book would not finish and that more pages would magically appear in the book.
