The way of Shadows (Night Angel Trilogy 1) By Brent Weeks

Product Description

For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art-and he is the city's most accomplished artist.

For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums, and learned to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics - and cultivate a flair for death.

MY REVIEW    1/10

I actually didn't finish this book,and read upto page 127 of 450 pages of the ebook. It was quite painful to read and extremely frustrating. I didn't care about the characters nor the plot which seemed non-existent, and the descriptions and names were cringe worthy "doll-girl, wetboy, rat, Durzo Blint? Why on earth would you call an assassin a wetboy, sounds rather fishy to me and with all these ridiculous names I found it difficult to read. The plot jumped from 1 character to another which was utterly confusing and u necessary. The idea of keeping all the pointless scenes leads to a complete mess.

Frankly I was very disappointed.
