    One thought on “The Broken Eye”

    1. The Broken Eye, the third book to the Lightbringer series, read and shelved. First things first, it will be really hard to review this book without spoiling anything from the story but I'll do my best, I'll also put spoilers tag when it's necessary. I'll keep this review as simple and effective as possible and by effective I mean I hope my review could get you (I'm talking to you, the one marking this as TBR right now and scrolling down the reviews) to start reading this series soon.Simple revie [...]

    2. The Broken Eye is an excellent continuation of a wonderful series, fully worthing your attention.“Don’t judge a man by what he says his ideals are, judge him by what he does. Look at what the Color Prince has done. They’re wrong, Teia. They’re liars and murderers. It doesn’t mean everything we do is right. It doesn’t mean our house doesn’t need a thorough cleaning. I just don’t think we need to burn it to the ground to do it.” The characters are better developed than in the pre [...]

    3. Honestly how am I supposed to wait a whole year for this book to come out! I just spent all of this past year waiting for Blinding Knife to come out! You know Brent weeks has to be a great author for everyone to be desperate to get his booksTER TWO YEARS OF WAITING I HAVE FINALLY READ IT!!!!It did take awhile for me to really get into this book but I did around page 200. However that may be because it has been a really long time since I have read the last book and may have forgotten some of the [...]

    4. Yep I might have to re-read the previous two books to try to remember what happened on them. I should have waited for the series to finish first but Nooooo I could not help reading more of Brent Weeks' books after the Night Angel series

    5. Well at this point I must admit that I think Brent Weeks should have stuck to making this a trilogy. I loved the first book and enjoyed the second even more but this one was only average. There was far too much padding and even the action scenes went on and on until they became tedious.Just a few moments ago I looked at the blurb for book 4 and discover that Gavin spends most or even all of the next book in yet another prison situation. Come on Mr Weeks - here you have one of the best book heroe [...]

    6. Another fun read with likeable characters, interesting plot and a really unique and well-developed world. This one wasn't quite as good as the last one (mostly due to the fact that the plot meandered a bit in comparison) but it was still really enjoyable and I'm really excited for the final installment. Gavin's sections in this one were probably the weak-link. The "hero suffering in captivity" plot-line is one that I often find to be pretty dull and it took up pretty much all of Gavin's arc in t [...]

    7. *** 5+ ***The BB&B BR with Eon & Sarah is still going strong! When I love a book or series this much, I tend to suck at reviewing it! After all, what can I start talking about first? And how can I say anything without giving it away?? And how can I do it any justice??? As You see, this will be another one of those where I have lost all sense of objectivity and have become all emotion and fangirling Maybe it is a good way to tell you - i love this book and series, and the only way I know [...]

    8. I want to make some sense of this book - yet, I just finished it so it is going to be an "emotional" review. First and foremost, I am so glad this book focused (view spoiler)[ on the Chromaria primarily. It was time to know more about it, to get a better understanding of the political and otherwise powers at stake(hide spoiler)].I did not have a problem with any character (view spoiler)[ besides Aliviana Danavis but I think the book left her story line at such a big intersection I think she migh [...]

    9. Assistant Peter Recommends: The Broken Eye by Brent WeeksHello there! Brandon Sanderson's assistant Peter here. This is the start of a sporadic feature on Brandon's blog where I recommend something to you. (This was originally posted on Brandon's blog, but I'm also posting it here on GoodReads.) But don't worry, this probably won't happen very often. I am also going to recommend something else to you next week, but then who knows when the next time might be? Not I. Since you never can tell when [...]

    10. The BB&B BR with Choko & Sarah is still going strong!Five Prismatic stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The Broken Eye is the third book in The Lightbringer series so expect spoilers below guys.I warned you right? SPOILERS.Ok, ok. Tagging it.(view spoiler)[The Blinding Knife ended with Kip slaying a god with the help of Gavin & the Blackguards in the Battle of Ru but unfortunately it did not quite end on that high for our MC’s. On the trip back Kip fought with Andross and Grinwood [...]

    11. I don't think this rating will come as a surprise to anyone who was following my updates. I was massively disappointed with this book and even the strong finish couldn't drag it back to 3 stars. I am going to keep this review brief because there isn't much to say to be honest. It is a book of side stories and info about the main characters with almost zero plot forwarding until the last few chapters. All of what was read in this book could have and more importantly should have, been added to the [...]

    12. 3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2014/09/12/bThings are definitely picking up in this third book of the Lightbringer series…but is it going to be enough?Obviously, if you’ve made it this far, you’d probably have a good grasp on what’s been happening by this point. Gavin Guile, the Prism who stole his brother’s identity is lost to the open seas, captured and enslaved by pirates with his color sight – and thus his ability to draft – gone. As rescue missions mount, hi [...]

    13. This is a book which I have been meaning to get to for quite a while (since the ending of the second was rather explosive) and I am so glad that I finally got the chance whilst doing an illustration project. It was the perfect time for me to read (or rather listen as I have the audiobook) and enjoy the story because it was fast and exuberant, fun and shocking all at once and it keep the creativity and determination flowing. This is the continuation of the story from books #1 and #2 but honestly, [...]

    14. Urgh Middle book syndrome! I love this world very much and the characters even more. I enjoy politics and battles and magic a lot and can subsist for a long time on just the micro elements of good stories. But this? Nothing happened. The book ended with many of the main characters a mere step from where they began--Gavin from captured to captured; Kip from fleeing to fleeing, Betrayers continue to betray, and there are a few "oh, snap!" moments here, but they're a little bit expected (looking at [...]

    15. GreatA really good instalment in the series. I like the way the books started off slowly, seemingly simple, yet layer after layer is added bit by bit. More of the seven satrapies is revealed, along with more back story on Gavin and others. Still plenty to keep you guessing. The plot has definitely thickened, with some unexpected twists along the way. I will now read book 4.

    16. Well, 'The Broken Eye' is a smart, fun, exciting entry into the Lightbringer series. Weeks did a very sensible thing by maintaining the same vibe found in 'The Blinding Knife'. The politicking and conspiracies in the Chromeria have always been a strong point of this series and making this the novels main focus was a sensible choice. Due to this, the novel does tend to majorly revolve around Kip and Teia whit the rest of the cast being demoted to merely supporting persons and some characters (for [...]

    17. Is this a little bit of filler? Yes. After the conclusion of this novel, I can't wait for the 4th and final installment to close out the story lines of these characters Week's has made me learn to love/hate/love to hate. Much of what we were left with in the Blinding Knife does not get resolved here.With that said, Brent Week's "filler" is still top-notch and a joy to read. The war with the Color Prince seems to float in the background. It is still being waged, but there are no battles or chapte [...]

    18. Oops, accidentally deleted from my shelves.Dont feel like typing out my review again. This book rocked. The end.

    19. had the time only for maybe 100 pages and it is just vintage Brent Weeks so far; almost impossible to put down (only literally dropping it when my eyes unwittingly closed from tiredness at 1am made me stop reading) so I need to have a good time chunk to read it end to endfollows Gavin, Kip, Teia and somewhat less Karis for now finished the novel and now i am rereading it as usually the first read became quite a breathless one from some point on, where I just turned the pages to see what happens [...]

    20. 2.5 starsAnother divergent rating from a lot of my buddies on . And I'm rounding it up simply because there were some great moments in this book, which as whole just felt like it dragged on and on and on and on It's been awhile since I've felt so divided on a book before. These characters are good and I really liked them back in book two, but The Broken Eye seemed to have stretched out the character development on the downward trajectory as far as I was concerned. I thought that I am supposed to [...]

    21. The ten commandments of Joseph Campbell on reading myths:1. Read myths with the eyes of wonder: the myths are transparent to their universal meaning, their meaning transparent to its mysterious source. 2. Read myths in the present tense: Eternity is now. 3. Read myths in the first person plural: the Gods and Goddesses of ancient mythology still live within you. 4. Any myth worth its salt exerts a powerful magnetism. Notice the images and stories that you are drawn to and repelled by. Investigate [...]

    22. So I'm feeling elated that I finished, sad that it's over and we have at least a year to wait for the next one. Lots of excellent character development in this book, Brent is pushing his characters to be their best (and worst) as the war with the Colour Prince advances adn as they search (somewhat half heartedly) for their missing Prism. Gavin/Dazen gets the raw end of everything bad in this book, so as much as I'd like his fate be to happier, it's realistic, especially with such a horrible, vin [...]

    23. Finally, I like Kip! Very much much enjoyed this 3rd book. I think it the best in the series so far. Can't wait for book 4!

    24. Truly, these books just get better with time. I didn't think I'd like to see Gavin get thrown into so much crap, but I do. Sure, he deserves it, but I still like the hell out of him. He skirts a fine line between trickery and divinity. Kip is simply likable to the core, and it was mainly because of him that I love the books so much. Never mind that the plots are impeccable or that the magic system is fan-f***ing-tastic, never mind that all of the characters are amazing and unforgettable, never m [...]

    25. 3.5, because of the last few chapters. The rest before that? I dont remember anymore hahaha. I still like the main plot. Sharp is a creep! But they couldve used him some more to creep the shit up. But then again hes just a pawn in something bigger just like the rest it seems!The story is lukewarm and the ending is crazy! The main plot is what still keeps me hooked, its great but actually reading the story is somewhat flat sometimes. I cant really pinpoint what the problem is for me maybe too man [...]
