"Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off."—Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear on The Night Angel Trilogy

Présentation de l'éditeur

As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who might 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.

With over two million books in print, Brent Weeks has become one of the fastest selling new fantasy authors of all time.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Brent Weeks, né dans le Montana, passa quelque temps à parcourir le monde comme Caine, le héros de Kung Fu, à s'occuper d'un bar et à corrompre la jeunesse (mais pas en même temps), avant de commencer à écrire sur des serviettes en papier de restaurants. Enfin, un jour, quelqu'un décida de le payer pour ça.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabuleux 26 avril 2015
Par Sylvia
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Superbe histoire de Fantasy, de très haute qualité ! Ce tome 3 est aussi excellent que le 2 premiers et l'histoire progresse allègrement.

On apprend beaucoup d'informations et la fin est plutôt... tonique ! Entre l'action menée tambour battant et les révélations imprévues, les 100 dernières pages de ce gros pavé passent en un clin d'oeil. Dans ce livre, Gavin Guile passe de bien mauvais moments, Karris est toujours au top de sa forme, on apprend qui a tué Lucia (c'est plutôt surprenant) et Kip a bien du mal à échapper à tous ses ennemis. Kip semble bien correspondre de plus en plus au Porteur de Lumière, mais l'auteur n'a pas encore dit son dernier mot... Le futur tome 4 s'annonce passionnant.

J'ai adoré ce 3ème tome de Lightbringer,, il y a quelques petites longueurs au milieu du livre mais le rythme reprend pour se terminer avec des révélations époustouflantes à la fin (à vous de lire ;) )
J'apprécie toujours le changement de point de vue au fil des chapitres, et certains chapitres "flashback" permettent de mieux comprendre l'histoire.
Vivement le tome 4 !

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing, but still better than 99% of the genre. 30 août 2014
Par Bart - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I am a huge Brent Weeks fan. Read all of his books and read the first two in this series twice each. I own first editions of all the books in this series. The only authors I anticipate a new book from more are Martin, Rothfuss, and Sanderson. I was shocked to realize that I liked The Blinding Knife more than I liked its Sanderson book-two counterpart, Words of Radiance (although I could argue either way). In fact, although I buy the vast majority of my ebooks from Amazon, I bought this one from ibooks, because their new releases are available a few hours before Amazon makes them available (I think it's because Apple uses Midnight Eastern and Amazon uses Midnight Pacific).

All of that said, this book was somewhat of a letdown. It suffers from the middle-child syndrome the second book avoided. My best guess is that Weeks had three-and-a-half great books for this series and decided (or the publisher decided) to stretch it to four, rather than cut it to three. Broken Eye has more exposition, more navel-gazing, and less action than either book one or book two. Also, of the big questions we were left with at the end of The Blinding Knife, virtually all remain unanswered, or are answered unsatisfactorily. Fortunately, despite all this, Liv manages little screen time. Her motivations are pretty murky, she's a little boring, and I'm still kind of confused on what, exactly, superviolet is good for aside from writing coded messages. The Color Prince gets talked about a lot, but his perspective is virtually absent from this book--another reason I think this is one part of a two-part finale.

As usual, Kip is at his best when he's spouting off to a superior. The dialogue is effortlessly written, and the humor is above average as expected. I enjoyed reading The Broken Eye. I wasn't ever bored, exactly. It just didn't advance the plot to the degree I have come to expect in this series. If you want to drag everything out like Robin Hobb, you may. But it works better if that pace is set during book one. It's genre fiction, and though it rises above most of the rest of the category, you still have to give the readers what they want. In this case, in no particular order, that is (1) Kip reaping vengeance on his enemies, (2) lots of drafting and related magic gizmos, (3) battles, and (4) revelations. Most of the action takes place in the last 10% of the novel, and it feels rushed. It was unsatisfying.

On the scale Weeks has set for himself, this book gets 3 out of 5 stars. Compared to everything else being published in the genre, it's a 5 out of 5. I settled on 4. I enjoy this series immensely, but The Broken Eye is the least of the three.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Weak for Weeks 2 septembre 2014
Par Merman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As others have said, this book is a filler and a very long setup for the next/last book. I finished it and felt like someone had stolen the rest of the book. It ends just as it feels like it should be starting. You really could shorten this book to a ten page synopsis of the things that happened and move on without missing anything. After pre purchasing this book and waiting for almost eight months, I do feel taken advantage of. It reads ok and what action there is, is good. Overall, a cash cow roll out.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 What happened? 28 août 2014
Par K. Hutchens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was so excited for this book. I stayed up late, read at work and I finished it feeling... underwhelmed. Weeks took characters that you had invested in and ruined them. Is this a filler novel? Yes. Is it necessary for the story progression? Perhaps. I like finishing a book and being left with the feeling that you can't wait for the conclusion. I just don't care anymore and that is perhaps the worst feeling ever after reading a novel.
Obviously, if I write why I was left this way then I will be ruining it for others and I don't want to be that person, but I will say don't be surprised if you are left uncaring about this series afterwards.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Filler novel. 28 août 2014
Par CB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As a third book in a great series this is a must read book. That said... it is a filler novel. There are a few revelations and some character building but I was surprised at how little actually happens. This lack of major events combined with the excessive use of other viewpoints in lesser importance characters kept me from enjoying this novel as much as the previous ones. I finished it last night with a neutral "eh" You'll have to read it though so make the best of it and lower your expectations going in.

Beware... in the Ebook version the book ends at around 93 percent as there is the same huge appendix of world and magic info that was in the previous books.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Maybe I'm getting too long in the tooth... 11 septembre 2014
Par Dolt Dullard - Publié sur Amazon.com
This review is for the audio version. The narration was clear and easy to listen to, and the narrator employed a wide and appropriate vocal range.

Regarding the story itself, I never really got into it. I found the prose to be repetitive and somewhat listless, and the point of view almost indiscernible at times. One significant event early on was told from a distance, with the occasional reminder the POV character is watching from a window. It left me detached from what was happening, and was virtually an omniscient narrator pretending to be close point of view.

I could rustle up no interest in the politics, the magic, the Orders. This, admittedly, may be a failing of mine rather than the author's. I found a lot of the mise en scene contrived (aren't they all? But in the best writing, the reader forgets and becomes immersed in the world) and bearing little or no relation to any points of reference I could make use of in the world I inhabit. Naturally, others have taken to Mr. Weeks' world building like ducks to water, so I am willing to concede once more that the fault is mine.

At its simplest, The Broken Eye just did not resonate with me; there was nothing to draw me into the story, and a lot of things that kept me at arm's length (the aforementioned POV issues, word and phrase repetition, and worst of all, long passages of reflection about what had happened previously, most of which caused the plot to grind to a halt). I found little or no humor in the characters, and far too little conflict in the story in those crucial early stages. Action scenes, by and large, lacked immediacy.

It may be that I am simply out of touch with the genre. Mr. Weeks is up there with the best of the so-called "new-wave" writers, but thus far I have not enjoyed any of this new fare, save for some of Joe Abercrombie's works. I'm still stuck somewhere between R.E. Howard and David Gemmell.
