One of the best Fantasy books of 2012. A Dribble of Ink on The Blinding Knife
...A solid, entertaining yarn. The Onion A.V. Club on The Black Prism
Weeks has written an epic fantasy unlike any of its contemporaries. It is a truly visionary and original work, and has set the bar high for others in its subgenre. graspingforthewind.com
Weeks manages to ring new tunes on...old bells, letting a deep background slowly reveal its secrets and presenting his characters in a realistically flawed and human way. Publishers Weekly on The Black Prism
The Blinding Knife is a wonderful work of high fantasy with engaging characters facing the perfect antagonists, set in a creatively-wrought and increasingly chaotic world brimful of imaginative magic and interesting politics. Weeks holds fast to the traditions of his genre while adding a compelling new flavor. The Ranting Dragon
One of the best epic fantasies I've ever read. Staffer's Book Review on The Blinding Knife
Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off. Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear
The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks was even better than The Black Prism (and that's saying something!) B&N.com
“A fun and entertaining epic fantasy.” Examiner.com
“Vance keeps the action moving at a strong and steady pace that makes the hours fly by. He expertly weaves the threads of the plot as the political intrigue and signs of war increase.” AudioFile
