Brent Weeks Signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, August 29 at 7pm
Brent Weeks’s on-line bio states he started writing on bar napkins, then on lesson plans and then full time and eventually someone paid for it. We are so happy that he did as he presents us with the third in the spectacular Lightbringer series. Chromeria faces a civil war that will engulf the known world but the powers of the Prism have been lost and Kip Guile will have to survive the ascendant order of the hidden assassins called The Broken Eye. The evening promises to be entertaining with Brent leading a lively discussion, reading, and answering most of your questions, assisted by his Street Team, the Blackguard Captains.

This is a numbered event – numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of The Broken Eye from Mysterious Galaxy, available August 26th, starting at 10 AM!

Brent Weeks | The Broken Eye
The King's English Bookshop, Tuesday, September 2 at 7pm
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.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of The Broken Eye from The King's English.

GET YOUR COPY NOW! Preorder your signed copy of The Broken Eye today, by either calling the store at 801-484-9100 or ordering online. Please specify if you will be attending the event and if you want your book personalized. del.icio.us Facebook Google StumbleUpon Twitter Yahoo
