My Thoughts:

The Way of Shadows is very interesting. I wasn’t super addicted to it, like it wasn’t as much my style, but I’ll still continue the series. Some parts were confusing to me but that might be because I was reading too fast and haven’t re-read over it again. But I got the gist of what was happening. I wouldn’t say this is a book for young readers. It has swearing and other things in it but not graphic sex. Also, you can learn a lot of ways to kill someone, if you’re interested. 😉 I just want Kylar and Logan to be friends again and for everyone to be happy (except for the evil dudes). So overall, great but not what I was expecting.

From Goodreads:

From New York Times Bestselling author Brent Weeks…
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.

Brent Weeks was born and raised in Montana. After getting his paper keys from Hillsdale College, Brent had brief stints walking the earth like Caine from Kung Fu, tending bar, and corrupting the youth. (Not at the same time.) He started writing on bar napkins, then on lesson plans, then full time. Eventually, someone paid him for it. Brent lives in Oregon with his wife, Kristi. He doesn’t own cats or wear a ponytail.
