TEXT ☆ The Burning White ´ Brent Weeks

In this stunning conclusion to the epic New York Times bestselling Lightbringer series kingdoms clash as Kip struggles to escape his family's shadow in order to protect the land and people he lovesGavin Guile once the most powerful man t Review copy provided by the publisher—Orbit—in exchange for an honest reviewEpic engaging well written and surprisingly full of theologyHere we are nine years since The Black Prism was first published The Burning White—the fifth and final installment in the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks—is finally out and with it the Lightbringer pentalogy is officially over This is one of my—along with many fantasy readers—most anticipated books of the year to make sure that I’ll be able to appreciate it fully I even binged reread the series from the beginning—something I rarely do—in preparation Now that I’ve read it I have to say that I’m both satisfied and also disappointed with it Don’t get me wrong as far as enjoyment goes I’m still giving this book a 4 stars rating; I was engrossed wasn’t bored and I finished this 392000 words tome within five days However although I had a wonderful time with this book and series I can’t deny that I had issues with the way Weeks resolved the series; allow me to dive into that later but first I want to elaborate on the parts that I loved as spoiler free as possible “Of all the things that die hope is the most easily resurrected” I’ve said this throughout my reviews of the series several times and I have to say it once again that I think Weeks is one of the smartest writers in the genre when it comes to plot twists and revelations Seriously even though some of the resolutions in this book didn’t sit well with me the number of plot twists he planned and unveiled throughout the series was nothing short of outstanding; I have to applaud him for that That still stands true here most of the time The Burning White is by far the largest book in the series; it’s as big as The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson and Weeks has a huge number of storylines to close in this one book In this tome Weeks did successfully gave closure to some of the major character's story arc and also leave room for stories should he ever decide to go back to writing in this world “What if everyone in the world said ‘Someone’s gonna do evil—but it won’t be me’?” Character developments were one of the other aspects that I enjoyed so much from this series; it’s satisfying to read how far the major characters have come since their first appearance I could ramble on for hundreds of words about each character’s development but I don’t think I need to do that I would however mention that Teia’s story conclusion was probably the most satisfying out of all the characters in the series Weeks spent thousands of pages building her character since The Blinding Knife and although each main character in the book received their spotlight eually I personally found Teia’s story to be the most thoroughly engaging for almost the entirety of the series The Burning White is a huge book and the major characters didn’t reunite with each other until the story reached the second half This situation made the pacing of the first half of the novel a bit too slow at times but it also amplified the tension of the final war Honestly the second half of the book was so good that I found myself annoyed by how many times I had to put down the book due to real life necessities Intense emotional and well written; the war in the final two hundred pages was global in scale and full of impressive feats and magical battles “Strength is a choice Courage is a habit Unfortunately cowardice is too” Prose wise I also think that The Burning White featured Weeks’s strongest prose so far For the past four books there weren’t many passages or sentences I found worth highlighting and in this one there were so many of them that I wished I could share with you all The three years of waiting for this book to come out was worth the wait in that regard; the writing was tremendously well polished and I found myself immersed with the book Also there were many noteworthy scenes in this tome including the final war but in my opinion the most extraordinary scene in this book was the final Nine Kings duel; Yugi Oh would’ve been proud of Weeks’s Nine Kings scenes delivery Seriously Andross Guile must also be one of the most memorable morally grey characters in fantasy whether you love or hate him “People call others ‘gifted’ when they don’t want to believe they’re worse at something because they’re not willing to put in the work of excellence reuires” Now you may be wondering after all the positive things I’ve said why didn’t The Burning White received a 5 stars rating from me? The simple answers to this would be the sudden change to theological fantasy and the barrage of Deus ex machina used to resolve the multitude of conflicts in the series Faith and religion have always been an important and recurring theme of the series but it was simply too much in this book It almost felt like Weeks found a new faith in Christianity and poured all his belief in it into this particular book with no brake The first 400 pages were already full of theology discussions that slowed down the pacing considerably but I honestly found this section to be acceptable because it still aligned with the direction of the series so far Plus religion and faith are relatable major themes implemented in many stories not just fantasy that I tend to enjoy reading immensely However the biggest issue I had wasn’t due to the fact that religion became the most dominant theme of the book but it’s how religion and a complete sense of faith in God became the solution to practically every uestion revelations and conflict of this book or series “If an institution presents itself as uniuely moral but is secretly monstrous isn’t that proof that its very ideas are corrupt and corrupting rather than that only some few of its practitioners are corrupt?” Lightbringer is to me a series that’s both incredibly refreshing twisted and full of revelationsmechanisms with data and background to back them up; plot twists and solutions were constantly shocking and never felt out of place but The Burning White changed all of this by relying on Deus ex machina bombardments Without going into spoilery details almost every conflict in this book was solved because of the power of God The final war itself took three tomes to prepare and reached Weeks spent a LOT of time building towards this war and final confrontation with the final bosses of the series but the final bosses ended up only making an appearance for roughly ten pages long; thousands of pages and years of waiting to reach this confrontation and it ended in ten minutes of reading Also Chromaturgy was a magic system with many hard rules I even mentioned that it’s on par with Sanderson’s magic system level of crafting but Weeks threw the rules away and replaced them with soft magic systems without any intricate explanation other than it’s all possible because of God’s intervention I’m not kidding; the

Brent Weeks ´ The Burning White EBOOK

The Burning WhiteElf is threatened by treason and siege Kip Guile must gather his forces rally his allies and scramble to return for one impossible final standThe long awaited epic conclusion of Brent Weeks's New York Times bestselling Lightbringer serie It took me a couple of days I think it was over 900 pages but I am finished and I loved it That is how you write a finale all my uestions were answered and all my favourite characters had a fair share of the action Of course it was GavinDazen who I was really waiting for and his pages were than I had hoped for At last we got the real back story of his childhood and it was an eye opener Andross also got a giant's share of the book which he spent being well being Andross His part at the end was unexpected for me anyway Weeks chose to write the book by leaving each chapter on a cliff hanger and moving to a different set of characters and their point of view of the current action This freuently caused much suspense and resultant frantic reading to get back to where things had been left off It was actually a very hard book to put down and the housework has suffered accordinglyI am going to miss Gavin Guile and the rest This was a great series and one I may well go back to one day
