Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks' New York Times bestselling Night Angel trilogy."I got a bit of prophecy," the old assassin said. "Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you're here, I see they're all you. Durzo Blint."Durzo Blint? Gaelan had never even heard the name.***Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He's also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he's worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he's become a hero, his very names passing into legend: Acaelus Thorne, Yric the Black, Hrothan Steelbender, Tal Drakkan, Rebus Nimble.But when Gaelan must take a job hunting down the world's finest assassins for the beautiful courtesan-and-crimelord Gwinvere Kirena, what he finds may destroy everything he's ever believed in.Word count: ~17,000

4.0 Perfect Shadow

Decent enough overall. Nice to see Durzo again. But even knowing this was a novella, I felt shortchanged. I think I would've been less disappointed in the length if a full 20% of the eBook weren't an advertisement for the author's other books. 5%, great. 10%, I feel a little irritated. 20% of a book...

Writing: 4.5Story/Plot: 4Depth/Detail: 4Enjoyment: 4.5Let me preface, as I always do with Brent Weeks reviews, by saying I'm a huge homer fan of his and think he's brilliant and handsome. That said, Perfect Shadow was a quick and dirty little prequel to the Night Angel Trilogy. It followed Durzo Bli...

Sorry, but after the first few pages I was so turned off by the subject (fecal matter!) and unnecessary language that I couldn't continue. What a waste of 3 bucks. Not for me.

Ridiculously annoying teenage boy's fantasy, and no sign of Momma K's sister anywhere. Huge disappointment.
