The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

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. Yet Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live.

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. @goodreads 

Let me write a short review here and then do a side note.

I loved the characters of Kip and Gavin and a few others. I really want to continue on with their story and see where it goes. Especially when I read the part about Gavin and his brother. Uh, mind blown.

There was a part at the beginning of the book that just put me off (and don't ask) and I'm just getting irritated with stuff like that.

Soooooo many of my friends love these books and some are just okay with them. I do have the other current books but I don't know if I'm going to continue.

Side Note

Here's the thing. The other day I got mad and took a ton of my books that I have read and haven't read and mom took me to the used bookstore 5 minutes from our house and we traded in books and toys for money that I need and trade credit. Which I got some horror books and mom got some thrillers but she will read my horror as well.

This side note is about either me being too old (115) and changing my ideas about books or I'm just getting ill from reading too much of the same genre. I read ALL genre's people and I appreciate those that like my reviews even if it's not your genre. Maybe that's what got me on this book. Maybe I need to read more of my horror books, graphic novels, ya books, fluffy books, smut, memoirs. I really don't know. I got mad and put this book and the others I own in the trade in pile then took more off my shelf to to put in the trade in pile. I figure if I'm only liking something or feel like I'm not going to read it again then I'm getting rid of it and keeping what I love and getting multiple copies of the different books covers. I currently have 19 bookcases, if I counted right and it's just too much.

You know I might feel I need to continue on with this series and see where it goes with Kip and other people in the books. If so then there is the library. I just really don't know what's going on.

End Of Side Note

I know that had nothing to do with the book review as a whole but it's just something I needed to say because maybe I would have liked this book more at a different time. And I am soooooooooooooooooooooooo freaking happy half of my friends loved it and people I don't know loved it. For me, I just fell flat. I don't really think it was the book. I think I fell flat. I might take a stab at them later because like I said before I enjoy some of the characters but I just don't know and I hate this feeling. Sigh . . . 



  1. It's on my TBR for some now, hope I will enjoy it more :D

    1. You probably will, I think it was just my mood or something, sigh


  2. For some reason all I heard was "I currently have 19 bookcases..." and I was like I want to move in there with you!!! You have the BEST ROOM EVER!!!!! I'd love to have that many bookcases....I'd love room for that many bookcases!!!! That is sooo cool!!!! Hahahaha!!!!! You have like a beauty and the beast library going on there, minus the ladders. 😂 But really, I do the same thing. I have limited space, so I just keep the books I really love!! Except on my tablet, that is filled with books. If they were physical books, I wouldn't be able to fit in here with them. Lol 😂

  3. Lol, thank you Donna =) I'm a bookcase freak and have no more room for any more. Two are in the bathroom for goodness sake!

    I won't even talk about my kindle. It's mad at me =)
