Would make a great movie. by Leslie (Posted on 8/30/2018)
If you haven't listened to this book.. DO! It only gets better. This world of magic is unlike any other that I know of.
very well done by William (Posted on 8/15/2017)
can't stop listening to this series.LOVE IT!
Much better than the two first parts, but... by Patrick (Posted on 4/2/2017)
Now we see that the world is actually quite dark and full of horrors. There's lot's of adrenaline pumping action, but almost a little bit too much of it.

I will give the first book as a whole a "weak four out of five". But then again I compare it with masterpieces like the Night Angel Trilogy, Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive.

It will be interesting to see if the story keeps on getting better in book two.
Wow by Travis (Posted on 3/29/2017)
Great conclusion to book 1 of the Lightbringer series, left me wanting more. GA, as always, is superb in their audio adaption. The voice acting, music, and sound effects all blend together to make the perfect listening experience for fans of fantasy. Brent Weeks has definitely crafted an intriguing and fascinating world within this book, and I look forward to the next.

Book 3of3 by justin (Posted on 4/24/2016)
Good book
Absolutely amazing! by Brandon (Posted on 4/14/2016)
Ok, first a confession...I like GA productions. I almost feel like I "know" the voice actors, like we're family and they're sharing tales 'round the campfire. But this production was just utterly brilliant! This third part of the first book is, for all intents, a massive battle. I liken it to a "Helms Deep" type battle. And you would think that 3+ hours of battle would get stale and difficult. Absolutely not! Credit the author, each major scene lasts exactly as long as it should. Each conflict is gripping, each main character has moments to shine, moments to fall and moments where I, as a listener, was totally sucked in! At one point, two of the main characters have dialogue along the lines of "Let's go kill us a king!" and I got chills, goosebumps and I think I even fist-pumped in the car! So yeah, this story has my highest recommendation!
Battle Hell, Unleashed by Catdaddy (Posted on 5/12/2015)
You've got to hand it to GraphicAudio: when they stage a battle scene, they truly know how to unleash hell. When it does finally break loose here in the second hour call of part three, there's no containing the audio carnage. Yet the script is solid, too - the story never loses its focus.

The story doesn't end with the battle, however. It reaches emotional depths we could not have expected. We are solidly invested in these characters, and the payoff is accordingly poignant. It becomes… utterly devastating. As the relationships twist and evolve, we realize how rich the characters are whom we find peppered throughout the drama. The writing is quite wonderful.

Anchored by a knockout performance by (I believe) Christopher Scheeren as Gavin Guile, the story is very well-acted. Joining the annals of great shieldmadens of literature (Eowyn, Paksenarrian) is Charis Whiteoak, who voiced by Kimberly Gilbert (again, I believe - detailed cast list, please GraphicAudio!) steals every scene she's in with fist-pumping bravura. One weaker link is Joe Brack playing Kip. He tends to play his scene in the spirit of Gene Wilder, with an acting style way! over! the! top! Clearly, the editor seems to realize this, burying his frequent yelps and shouts deep in the mix in crowd scenes.

The program is a very strong PG-13 – nearly an R – for the extensive, sometimes relentless battle violence, but little language and no sex. A worthy conclusion to a great book, and the first of three 3-parters in the series.
gotta love it by Arcenio (Posted on 5/6/2015)
I've listened to this book 3 times its like a never ending movie it gets better every time.
Excellent and fresh! by Armand (Posted on 10/9/2014)
I know I will get the entire series! Hooked and addicted! Hope the series goes on forever! I have to say, Brent Weeks and Brandon Sanderson are both in a league by themselves with such fresh content and unique premises in fantasy!

And yet again another outstanding performance and production by all!
The Black Prism 3 by Todd (Posted on 10/4/2014)

Lightbringer Saga by lennard (Posted on 6/25/2014)
Where is the rest. I am truly hooked. This series is definitely theater for the mind.
What a cliff hanger! by Robert (Posted on 1/10/2014)
Talk about leaving you wanting more! Sheesh! I'd beg, borrow, and steal to get the next book in this series. I have GOT to know what's going to happen. So many plot twists. It is a mental roller coaster and I love it!
Lightbringer Saga 1: Black Prism by Larry (Posted on 12/2/2013)
I enjoy this series very much. I can't stop listening too it. I look forward to more awesome titles like this from GA. If you've always wondered "Hey are these Graphic Audio books really that much better then a normal narrated book on tape?" HELL YEAH THEY ARE!!!. It took me a while to finally pick up one at the Love's but once I did I became addicted.

Where is Book Two???????
Review by Brandon Gentz (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Amazingly addictive... Bring on the rest!
Review by Scott Pike (Posted on 5/23/2013)
This was an excellent new series by Brent Weeks. It has interesting human characters and some surprising twist that actually managed to surprise, unlike most books where I see where the story is going from the start. Do yourself a favor and get every part and read the book. The story enjoyment is worth it.
