The Way Of Shadows: Book 1 of the Night Angel - Night Angel (Paperback)Brent Weeks (author)
The razor-sharp first novel in the Night Angel trilogy, from international bestseller Brent Weeks
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.

“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.
