Synopsis

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

    Not the same as the Night Angel

    I love this story. I had read it before The Blinding Knife came out and now that I finally have that one I decided to reread The Black Prism. For people who read the Night Angel trilogy, this is not at all the same and has a much different feel to it. The magic system is new, the characters are new, and the story is refreshingly new. I rate a book on how it makes me feel, I don't care if sometimes seems like elements are cliché. That said, I didn't notice any of those elements and felt that there were many wonderful and surprising twists and lots of action.

    The Black Prism

    Really enjoyed this. Took awhile to get going, then couldn't put it down.

    The black prism

    Fast paced and exciting, the author returns in fine form but refreshingly doesn't visit familiar archetypes. Quite a different saga from the fantastic night angel books and that's a good thing. A fresh and interesting magic system, charming characters and thrills and surprises that are becoming this young writers trademark. I highly recommend this book and this author.
