A modern classic of epic fantasy, Beyond the Shadows is the concluding volume in the multi-million copy selling and New York Times bestselling Night Angel Trilogy where Logan Gyre now holds the throne, but Kylar Stern has acquired a powerful new enemy, a goddess bent on the destruction of all that Kylar holds dear.

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance — a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom.

In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him.

Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends — and perhaps his enemies — he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Brent Weeks: Beyond the Shadows

Fantasztikus volt a könyv, de a végét egy kicsit összecsapta az író, kellett volna még néhány fejezet, így nem érzem lezártnak a történetet. De még ezzel együtt is kedvenc lett!

Népszerű idézetek


Ah hell, she thinks I’m a eunuch! There was a nice dilemma. How does one interject into a polite
conversation, “By the way, in case you’re ever interested, I do have a penis.”?
“If I could manage a disguise that convinced Yorbas Zurgah I’m a eunuch, I think I can warm your food.
Here.” And he warmed her gruel right then, hoping his I-do-have-a-penis was subtle enough


What had seemed simple—who can stop an invisible man from stealing?—was getting more complicated by the second. Who can stop an invisible man? A mage who can see invisible men.


“The blade burns to warn of danger or magic. The Dark Hunter is both.” So am I, Kylar thought.


Invisible, he simply walked past the sentries in their black tabards emblazoned with a golden sun: the pure light of reason beating back the darkness of superstition. Kylar grinned. The Lae’knaught were going to love the Night Angel.


“Have we met? There’s something about you that seems so familiar.”
“Actually, we did meet once.” During the coup. “I’m sorry I didn’t make more of an impression on you.” Six inches into your heart would have been about right.
“Well, we’ll remedy that.”


“So you’re the big wetboy,” the gap-toothed guard sneered. “You don’t look so tough when you don’t have a helpless woman shielding you.”
“Sorry I made you look bad,” Kylar said. Gap-tooth hit him in the stomach. “Please don’t hit me again,” Kylar said.
“You didn’t make us look bad, you murdering bastard.”
The captain said, “Don’t be an asshole, Lew. Of course he did.”
“Upstairs they’re making him sound like a god. Wetboy-this, wetboy-that. Look at ’im. He ain’t nothing.” Lew casually backhanded Kylar.
“Lew, I—” the captain cut off as Kylar disappeared. One by one the guards realized Kylar had vanished. There was dead silence for a moment. Then it was broken by the clang of manacles hitting the stone floor.
“Where the hell—”
“Sir! He’s gone!”
“Block the door! Block the—”
The cell door slammed closed with all the guards inside. The lock clicked. Kylar reappeared outside. Grinning, he waved the captain’s keys at them.
“That didn’t just happen,” one of them said.
“Tell me that didn’t just happen.” Another cursed under his breath. The rest still looked like they couldn’t believe it.
“Captain,” Kylar said, “will you please ask Lew not to strike me?”
The captain wet his lips. “Lew?”
“Yes, sir. Right, sir.”
Lew met Kylar’s gaze and quickly looked away. Kylar opened the cell door and the men shuffled out sheepishly.
“Should I, uh?” Lew asked, holding up the broken manacles. The captain swallowed.
“Uh, if you don’t mind, Master . . . um, Kagé?” Kylar put his wrists together. They put the manacles on him and walked out of the dungeons. No one said a word. No one laid a hand on him, either.


Kylar waved it off.
“Tell them thanks, but I’m not here ’cause I can’t escape.”
“I told them you’d say that. They said I’d get half for trying. I don’t know what you’re trying to accomplish, but you’re crazy brave.”


“Form up! Hedgehog!” he shouted. “You fools, you’re being
beguiled! Hedgehog formation, damn you!”
