The Broken Eye continues the spectacular Lightbringer series from the New York Times bestselling author of The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife.

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

Devour this epic, blockbuster fantasy series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Night Angel trilogy.

Continues in the same style, with a few surprises
The Broken Eye continues the Lightbringer Saga in the same style as the previous books. However, this book, even at 800 pages covers less ground than the previous books. I view this as a positive though, since it fills in a lot of the gaps and questions I had from earlier in the series. Like, what is the Blinder's Knife, how does it work? Why was it created? What is a bane and how is it created? And since the characters are no more developed it takes a lot more time to move everyone's story forward. The twists in book left me really excited to start the sequel "Blood Mirror" which is due out in October 2016. Things are coming to a head at the Chromeria, and in the confrontation with the Color Prince's Army and I am excited to see what that means for this cast of characters. Overall a great read, that while occasionally slow and winding leaves you hungry for the sequel and moves the series forward a great deal.
