In Their Own Words: Brent Weeks on BEYOND THE SHADOWS

Brent says:

Beyond the ShadowsBeyond the Shadows finishes the Night Angel Trilogy with a bang. There are revelations in this book that are going to send readers back to the beginning of the trilogy to read it all over again. Kylar comes into the fullness not just of his power, but of his identity, his purpose.

It’s a story of sacrifice and redemption, of the good and evil in each of us, of people who love each other so much they’ll give everything, of friends who will stand and be counted. It’s a story of looming catastrophe, and always – always – hard choices. There’s armies and war and magic and political brinkmanship. The stakes couldn’t be higher. It’s a story of friends who have to choose between loyalty and duty.

I’d love to be more specific, but when one’s strength is surprises, it behoves one not to drop spoilers…

Shadow’s Edge (UK | US | AUS) is out now and you can find it at all good high street and online booksellers.

Book one in the Night Angel Trilogy, The Way of Shadows, and book two, Shadow’s Edge are also available now. Check out our first chapter extract from the very beginning of the series and see what Brent had to say about The Way of Shadows and Shadow’s Edge in his previous In Their Own Words pieces for us.

    Mr. Weeks, I have been reading sci-fi and fantasy for a number of years and find it hard to find new writers who are also good writers. Don’t get me wrong, anyone who’s published is a better writer than I. What I meant was that there is a certain style of writing that appeals to me more. I saw your books and truth be told the only reason I bought them was because all 3 were due out in 3 months. I am currently reading several different series and always waiting for the next installment, hence my purchase of your series. I had not heard anything about them previously and the good folks at Coles knew nothing about them. Thank-you, they were a wonderful read. I hardly put them down. I will be buying your novels from now on. Once again….thanks. Sincerely Mark
