The fourth book in the blockbuster Lightbringer series from New York Times bestselling fantasy author Brent Weeks. When does an empire fall? The Seven Satrapies have collapsed into four-and those are falling before the White King's armies. Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken, and trapped in a prison crafted by his own hands to hold a great magical genius. But Gavin has no magic at all. Worse, in this prison, Gavin may not be alone. Kip Guile will make a last, desperate attempt to stop the White King's growing horde. Karris White attempts to knit together an empire falling apart, helped only by her murderous and possibly treasonous father-in-law Andross Guile. Meanwhile, Teia's new talents will find a darker use-and the cost might be too much to bear. Together, they will fight to prevent a tainted empire from becoming something even worse.

El asesino perfecto no tiene conciencia, sino una misión... Llega el desenlace de la trilogía épica «El Ángel de la Noche». El opresor ha muerto y su ejército ha sido vencido. La rebelión del pueblo de Cenaria ha triunfado, pero a un elevado coste. El país está en ruinas, y los supervivientes apenas podrían defenderlo. El hambre y la desesperación se adueñan del reino. Para evitar que estalle una guerra civil, Logan, el legítimo heredero, cede el trono a una de las nobles que encabezó la causa rebelde. Mientras, en el norte, se alza un nuevo rey dios. Su plan es una auténtica locura, aunque si logra sacarlo adelante nadie podrá pararle los pies jamás. Kylar ha de prepararse ante la contienda definitiva. Para salvar a sus amigos (e incluso a sus enemigos) deberá realizar lo imposible: asesinar a una diosa. Si fracasa, condenará a medio continente. Si triunfa, tal vez podría perder lo único por lo que le merecía la pena vivir. Es la última jugada. La partida está a punto de acabar. «Era el Ángel de la Noche, quizá el único hombre en el mundo al que deberíais temer.» Reseña: «Una de las más gratas sorpresas en lo que va de año. Un libro increíble.» Khardan, blog Un hacedor en el desierto

Pero Gavin Guile ha sido apresado por un viejo enemigo y ahora es esclavo en una galera pirata. Y lo que es todavía peor, ya no cuenta con la seña distintiva de todo Prisma: la capacidad mágica de trazar. Sin la protección de su padre, Kip Guile tendrá que enfrentarse solo a un maestro de las sombras al tiempo que su maquiavélico abuelo empieza a ponerlotodo en marcha para escoger a un nuevo Prisma e instaurarse a sí mismo en el poder. Con la ayuda de Teia y Karris, Kip deberá emplear su ingenio para sobrevivir a una guerra secreta entre casas nobles, facciones religiosas, rebeldes y una orden de asesinos ocultos en auge, el Ojo Fragmentado.

El asesino perfecto no tiene amigos, solo objetivos... La primera parte de «El Ángel de la Noche», la trilogía de fantasía épica que ha convertido a Brent Weeks en uno de los autores revelación de la literatura fantástica. La muerte es un arte, y Durzo Blint lo ejecuta a la perfección, sea en una callejuela oscura o en las grandes estancias de palacio. Incluso el poderoso Sa'kagé, la organización criminal que mueve los hilos y los intereses en la ciudad de Cenaria, lo respeta. La vida carece de valor si se ha nacido en las calles, y para Azoth la única manera de escapar a la miseria y el miedo que siempre lo han acompañado es ser temido antes que temer, matar antes de que lo maten. Si quiere sobrevivir, debe convencer a Blint de que lo acepte como aprendiz. Pero aprender a asesinar con el mejor exige más que un duro adiestramiento. Hay que cambiar de identidad. Hay que olvidar el pasado y aquello en lo que se creía. Hay que aprender a moverse como las sombras en un mundo de intrigas donde nobles, plebeyos y criminales son meras piezas en una partida que acaba de empezar. «Levántate, chaval. Es hora de matar.» Reseña: «El camino de las sombras es una novela que resultará apasionante para los aficionados a la fantasía épica. Y es solo el comienzo.» Historia y libros

La segunda entrega de «El Portador de Luz», la espectacular nueva serie de fantasía épica del aclamado autor de «El Ángel de la Noche». No hay luz sin sombra. No hay sombra sin secreto. Gavin Guile pensaba disponer de cinco años más de existencia como Prisma, pero resulta que le queda menos de uno. Con cincuenta mil refugiados a su cargo, por no hablar de un hijo ilegítimo que hay que formar en las artes mágicas y una ex novia que podría haber descubierto su más oscuro secreto, le llueven los problemas. De repente, la magia se descontrola en todo el mundo y genera un caos que amenaza con acabar con las Siete Satrapías. Peor aún, los dioses antiguos están a punto de renacer, y sus ejércitos parecen imparables. Tal vez el único camino para la salvación sea arrojar luz sobre la mentira que rige la vida de Gavin desde hace dieciséis años.

Colonel Beckford has been missing for years; he has seen strange things and acquired strange powers in his absence.
