For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art - and he is the city's most accomplished artist. For Azoth, survival is just the beginning. He was raised on the streets and knows an opportunity when he sees one - even when the risks are as high as working for someone like Durzo Blint. Azoth must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics - and become the perfect killer. The Night Angel trilogy, one of the most popular epic fantasy series in recent years, is compiled into one volume for the first time.

This book captivated me from the first page, and kept me hooked for the whole trilogy.

Usually with a trilogy I'll read one part expecting so much from the others, that I am sorely disappointed. Not with this one. It was a page turner, with plenty to keep you saying to yourself "just one more chapter and then I'll sleep" don't fool yourself into thinking this will happen, you'll just want to keep going.

The characters are very well written, and it is easy to find yourself in their surroundings, and going through their trials and tribulations.

I'm not going to write any spoilers for this outstanding set of books, just tell you to read them for yourself.

All females are either overly needy or hard-core fighting prostitutes, very anime-esque. The men are more well rounded, and they are the reason I kept reading, expect the main characters always to be overpowered and if they are not powerful enough expect them to win with love and friendship, always. It's a very silly series that's imposable to take seriously, and as soon as I realized this, I started to read it as I do when I sometimes casually watch Anime, after that, it was all right for a mind-numbing escape from reality.


TL;DR
If you're looking for an epic fantasy to sink your teeth into I would not recommend this book. If you're looking for a guilty pleasure anime that you are not planning on taking seriously, this might be worth a read. ( )

The book quickly spirals out of control, ending up with a Mary Sue main character, or I suppose in this case a Gary Stu. Either way, there are no significant challenges to the main character that cannot be gotten out of, and while there appear to be limits to the powers given, they are not realistic in nature at all and keep getting pushed upwards.
Tragedy awaited literally every character who wasn't the epitome of their stereotype, leading to misogynistic and homophobic overtones, despite seeming attempts to make the characters worth something. The side characters were also better developed than the main character.
I also felt like the first novel alone, in order to maintain its intricacy, should have been expanded upon. This series could have been utterly MASSIVE in scope but brilliantly planned and executed. Instead it was crammed into just over 1000 pages, so everything felt really hurried and rushed. The pacing was thrown off-sometimes weeks passed in a paragraph, or years, but the events of a few days took hundreds of pages.

The book did have its moments, but overall it was a disappointment. ( )

"Who am I kidding I'm not going to finish this. I want to, but I also want to read the other 60 billion books I have waiting on me. DNF for now."

*DNF so no rating

I loved this whole trilogy and it is now considered the best book series that I've ever had the pleasure of reading. It contains detailed action scenes, many plot twists some politics, magic and the word play to bring it all together into a amazing world for my mind to run through as i flip through the pages. ( )
