This is my favorite book of this series. Oh, how I loved it! I quite literally flew through the entire thing. Work, cleaning, even eating was put on hold to finish this book.

I liked Gavin in the first book. I loved Gavin in this one! He’s one of my favorite literary characters ever. Every time I started a chapter and realized it was a “Gavin” chapter I was thrilled! On the other hand, every time I realized it was a “Liv” chapter I felt annoyance deep in my soul.

I disliked Kip in the first book. I found him immature, whiny, annoying, etc. In this book, however, he starts to come of age. He develops friendships, gains a bit of confidence, and is maybe, kinda not as whiny? I’m not going to lie, I find the passages written with his friends to be on the corny side with a bit too many cliche’ come backs. However, they’re also still heartwarming.

The magic system really starts to get fleshed out in this book, the greatest character for this being Teia. I can’t say enough good things about her. She’s right behind Gavin on my favorite characters list.

Andross is the perfect villain. Genius, unpredictable, annoyingly right, and reprehensible. I loved to hate him.

All in all, this series started out strong with The Black Prism, but it really cemented itself as one of my favorite series with The Blinding Knife! ( )

The Blinding Knife is what a sequel should be. It takes the action and magic that made [b:The Black Prism|7165300|The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)|Brent Weeks|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327921884s/7165300.jpg|7534979] good and made it better while toning down a lot of the exposition and over-characterization that made it a bit of a drag at times.

On the plus side, the magic system has a lot more depth than it did in the first book while at the same time not spending quite as much time hitting us over the head with terms we don't quite understand yet. Even if I don't necessarily like some of the choices (like why you can't draft green from white light by default), it's still a well done system. Otherwise, the worldbuilding has gotten bigger. Magical trading cards. Seers. Old Gods.

Also a positive, I really am starting to like the majority of the characters. Kip is still annoying at times (“His name is Kit Guile and—” “Kip,” Kip interjected. “Not a woody tub for toys, a tubby wooden boy.”), but he's really starting to grow up. Gavin really is trying to do the right thing and it's nice to see his and Karris' relationship move past the 'well if you don't know I'm not telling you stage'. And some of those twists with Gavin(s)... oy. (Gavin. Dazen? Even I’m confused.)

Liv... I don't really care about Liv. I get where Weeks is trying to go with her story line (or at least I think I do), but that doesn't mean I don't skip past most of her sections. Perhaps Week will pull it off in the end?

New characterwise, I really like Teia. I wasn't sure where she was going to go at first, but she has a take on magic that people don't really believe exists, which is often interesting. Plus she provides an interesting point of view into the aspects of slavery in this society.

If you've read [b:The Black Prism|7165300|The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)|Brent Weeks|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327921884s/7165300.jpg|7534979], read this. If you haven't, give The Black Prism a try.

Good sequel, moves the story along. Twists and turns aplenty. ( )
  jercox | Jun 2, 2021 |
This is fairly standard epic fantasy, with a decent magic system and good action. There is a strange mix of gunpowder and magic, but magic almost always wins. Gavin Guile, The Prism, the head of the Chromeria, is being challenged by The Color Prince; an old enemy and anarchist. Gavin must try to hold together his own ruling coalition and stop The Color Prince, who is gathering every disaffected soldier and magic wielder (drafter) he can find to build his own empire of chaos. The book spends half of the time following Kip Guile, his son, as he trains to join the Blackguard and learn to become a drafter. ( )

Reading again and it is even better as the characters and their secrets unfold and the adversaries get into position ( )

With fifty thousand refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole sixteen years ago.
