The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks

The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks is a great book for all ages (especially teens). Owner of the book set myself, I can tell you the flow of this story and the awesome scenery in it is breathtaking. I am not one for reading books (I prefer short stories, guides, and articles) but this book took me in and hasn't let me go. The main focus of the story is a boy who grows up poor who wants to be an assassin. The story follows the life of Kylar Stern as he struggles as a guild rat to become the ultimate wetboy, then tries to leave it all behind and finally becomes the avatar of justice: the Night Angel.

This fantasy tale of cutthroats and justice taking place in a middle ages Europe type environment is action packed leaving you on the edge of your seat. With magical talents, different types of religions, and twisted politics how can you not try this story out?

The Trilogy Names

Book one : The Way of Shadows

Book two: Shadow s Edge

Book three: Beyond the Shadows

I strongly advise getting the whole trilogy. That way you save some money and you have no wait time between the book volumes, you can just keep on reading! Many series like this, Harry Potter as an example, people start reading and love the story only to find out they need to wait for the next book. During this wait time interest often diminishes and you forget about the prevous story.

      They look like a fun series of books. I haven't heard of them before, but the cover art reminds me of Assassin's Creed. :)

      it does not take place in a middle eastern type of environment. it's very middle ages europe kind of thing especially the politics part (kings, dukes, lords)

      Yes, gogo is right, the environment is very far from middle eastern, its typical late middle ages in central, western europe. Ive only read the first book of the three but im addicted, ive never ever read anything as good as this :)
