The razor-sharp first novel in the New York Times bestselling Night Angel series from master of modern fantasy Brent Weeks - an astonishing and epic tale of magic, violence and revenge.

The perfect killer has no friends. Only targets.

For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art. And he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir.

For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums, and learned the hard way to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics - and cultivate a flair for death.

'Brent Weeks has a style of immediacy and detail that pulls the reader relentlessly into his story. He doesn't allow you to look away' Robin Hobb

'Nobody does break-neck pacing and amazingly-executed plot twists like Brent Weeks' Brian McClellan

'Weeks creates a rich blend of politics, culture and character . . . then throws in magic-using assassins' Peter V. Brett

'Unforgettable characters, a plot that kept me guessing, non-stop action and the kind of in-depth storytelling that makes me admire a writer's work' Terry Brooks

'Weeks has truly cemented his place among the great epic fantasy writers of our time' British Fantasy Society

“How all books should be!”

I have never known a book to utterly takeover my life like this did. Brent Weeks certainly knows how to keep the readers guessing and compel me from beginning to end.
