Anyway, Weeks is as good as Canavan. This new trilogy is better than his first. Having read Ian C Esslemont before this I can see a plain difference in the writing skills and erudition of both authors. But, for me, it would be like comparing Dickens to Cussler.
Both are excellent in their own way and should be read without comparison. If you truly want to know where Weeks is then you could easily compare him to Eddings or Feist.

His strength, wit and charm are all that preserve a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exac He'd thought he had five years left - now he's got less than one.

My son had him sign both books in the new series. Brent read an excerpt supposedly from his next book after Blinding Knife.
He has a very distinctive style of reading and I could hear his voice as I read Blinding Knife. That was a little unsettling! Fortunately the excerpt turned out to be as much fantasy as the book! He had us all believing he was going to kill off one of his main characters. He may still do so, but not as happened in his reading. I still haven't forgiven JK Rowling for killing off Hedwig!
The Blinding Knife (Lightbringer #2) (Paperback)
Anyway - to the book. It follows on from Black Prism. Blinding Knife is brilliantly written and the characterisation is excellent as per usual. The series is a distinctly different fantasy series to any other and he creates a whole new range magic type with associated rules. It's a very long book so those that enjoy reading will regard it as excellent value. It may be overlong if you like fast paced books all the way through. For everyone else - this is a cracking read and I would recommend it.
It has everything a fantasy fan would like.

The Blinding Knife (Lightbringer, book 2) by Brent Weeks
However, the one thing that made this book drop from five to four stars for me was the swift end of the man-in-the-prison plot line. That really surprised me in book one, as I love a good twist. I thought this story would definitely play out across the series — the man pursuing his terrible revenge etc.
