Publisher's Summary

The Blood Mirror is the action-packed new audiobook in the Lightbringer series by international best seller Brent Weeks.

Stripped of both magical and political power, the people he once ruled told he's dead, and now imprisoned in his own magical dungeon, former emperor Gavin Guile has no prospect of escape. But the world faces a calamity greater than the Seven Satrapies has ever seen...and only he can save it.

As the armies of the White King defeat the Chromeria and old gods are born anew, the fate of worlds will come down to one question: who is the Lightbringer?

Exceeded expectations

I started reading this series more or less on a whim, thinking it not very deep but rather entertaining.

Well, I was half right. This book is a gem, it's deep and we'll written, packed with action and full of surprises. I love the characters and how they're not simply black and white (pun intended).

Definitely among the best works in fantasy.

Again Weeks brings us an amazing story

the Blood Mirror is not as good as the other three books. but the progession of the book makes me very excited for the fifth and sixth book. Weeks is an incredible story smith and the voice narration by Vance is still entertaining.

everything is coming to a head

Ever since I randomly bought a Brent Weeks book for something to read I have never been disappointed and the Blood Mirror is another example. So many threads being woven together in this the fourth book of the series but still leaving the story lines open and leaving me itching at the end of the book for the next volume in the story. The Characters have gone through massive changes over the books in attitudes and confidence. This you would expect from Kipp but the other character don't disappoint in that respect either. Some stars rising, others falling.

The Narration is good, the story developments show an overall story line linking everything together, the characters can be engaging and make you cheer for the 'Mighty' when they have a win and worry for them when the plots or fate are against them.

I don't know about you but I quickly devoured this book when it came out and have been waiting eagerly for the next volume!

Half a book

I loved the earlier books, and I love this one. However, it feels like he had to split the book (which is the case), and the end result suffered. I'm super excited for the next one though, hopefully this one got a lot of setup out of the way.

Superb both in story and speech

I enjoy fantasy incredibly and have read it since I was 12. Over the years I have read many and started audiobooks around 10 years ago while on the move. 32 now and this book is amazing, the story is set by great characters who live, fight, joke, love, have sex, stumble and have no clue what to do and experience grief.

It feels like real people in a fictional world. Upwards of that the audible version is just grand. The performance is solid and carries emotion and various characters perfectly.

Highly recommended!

Same awesome world

I love this world. The magic systems is inspired and the world deep and rich.

The story is also great, but... after finishing listening it almost seems like this is book 3.5 and I was waiting for the meat that was book 4.

I just fear that it will be another long wait for the final book in the series.

The worst book in the series so far.

This book was a poor substitute when compaird to the previous books, the author seemed to be strugging with the writing. It reads like a lot of middle books in a series where it feels like padding instead of an integral part of the story.

Enjoyed but felt a little cut short

Enjoyed the continued story and progression but after such a epic ending in the 3rd book and some truly awesome moments and big reveals I felt a little underwhelmed by this 4th books pacing and progression.

Spoilers **
You lose a lot of kips magic progression and focus in this book, the final battle doesnt feel as well done as the other battles in previous books with kip barely using any magic whatsoever and feels like they have barely done anything the whole book.

Gavins scenes are by far the most interesting in the book and andros guiles interactions and reveals of his knowledge of gods and hints at locust beings.

It feels like a "setting up" for greater thigs to come in the next installment or the first half of a sanderson book. I eagerly await the next book in this series but feel ot was the weakest novel so far.

I expected more...

I expected a lot more. Whilst the plot was engaging I felt like little actually happened. much of the mystery of book 3 was forgotten as was the sense of adventure. a good yarn but not of the standard I'd have expected. I was left waiting another year or so for the next chapter in the story...

So damn good!

Was in stitches with Kip's campfire moments, disturbed by the prison, and loved every moment of this book. Going to be torture waiting for the next book.

great characters amd magic

Darkness, bad language, violence and sexual content warning, but otherwise everything is amazing. The darkness is countered with a great and brilliant light. The characters, particularly Kip are on the list of somenof my gavourites ever.

Brilliant

The Author's Note at the end made me love Brent Week's as an author even more. What a great man you are for drawing attention to something that is real and not to be ashamed of. Men have "problems", and so do women.

The book though, AMAZING. My favourite of the 4. Not a fan of the battle scenes as they always make my eyes glaze over (as with any book), but the revelations in this was awesome. Now I need the next book NOW.

More like a Prelude to the last book.

Where does The Blood Mirror rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not a bad listen.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Clearly this book is just a prelude...very little story progression.

What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Ending of the Light Bringer series... PART 1.

Brilliant, bold, compassionate, raw and compelling

Brent Weeks weaves a plot like a spider weaves a sticky web.. his characters getting progressively more and more bound up in his tendrils of fate to the point where I am freaking out as I listen and wonder how in the world these characters are going to survive..

But somehow Brent leads us through and out the other end of the forest.

My favourite part of this story was how boldly and compassionately the note at the very end of the story was delivered.

As someone who has had people in her life experiencing this I’m proud that Brent Weeks - a man - chose to face this head on and make a difference in the small way an author can.

Brilliant book. Bold, compassionate, raw and compelling

love Brent weeks... but the Narration is poor...

for me - I found the narration leaves a lot to be desired... As almost every woman's part he spoke sounded overly effeminate and as a result took away from each character's potential depth... sure, there were different accents, but the majority sounded way too prim, proper, and a little up themselves to be engaging in the thoughts and actions the story weaved them on. I found myself automatically "re-speaking" the words or sentences in my head so they matched what the character was doing... :(

How good is Brent weeks

This has become one of my all time favourite series, each book is fantastic and the characters remain endearing in this one too. Kip and the blackguard are one of my favourite fictional companies ranking up their with bridge 4 from the stormlight archive, you can really feel the love and comradery among the group. Gavin continues to excel in this as a morally Greg character and I loved any scene with andross who’s the best villain since Tywin lanister imo.
