Mar 27, 2017
10 Hours
Ages 18+
When does an empire fall?

The Seven Satrapies have collapsed into four - and those are falling before the White King's armies.

Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken, and trapped in a prison crafted by his own hands to hold a great magical genius. But Gavin has no magic at all. Worse, in this prison Gavin may not be alone.

Kip Guile will make a last desperate attempt to stop the White King's growing horde. Karris White attempts to knit together an empire falling apart, helped only by her murderous and possibly treasonous father-in-law, Andross Guile.

Meanwhile Teia's new talents will find a darker use - and the cost might be too much to bear. Together they will fight to prevent a tainted empire from becoming something even worse.

Things may not be as they seem. by Leslie (Posted on 8/30/2018)
Andross Guile may have a heart. He might actually be trying to do the right thing.. I need more! The line from the beginning of this series keeps playing in my head. The first green white, Gaspar Elos, asks if doing a good deed when dying wipes away the bad. Kip decides its better to try. Can someone balance the scales in this world? Or any?

Climbing Out of the Miasma by Catdaddy (Posted on 8/25/2018)
One’s level of trust of any drama might depend on the balance between one’s affection for the characters and one’s concern for their welfare. In the last hour of the previous Lightbringer book, 3: “The Broken Eye”, the story began to forget the former. There is some movement toward redemption here.

If you have not listened to the first three volumes, do not bother with this one: it is utterly dependent on one’;s familiarity with the extensive world- and character-building of the previous stories. (If it has been a while since you’ve heard book 3 due to the gap between the releases, you may wish to go and re-listen to that story first.). This book begins in a Dickensian miasma, where the imprisonment of yet another major character is relentlessly depressing. And one warning: just before the five hour mark comes the unexpected return of a singularly irritating character guaranteed to make you groan. But the scene is brief, and the story survive each of these.

This reviewer wanted to dismiss the entire series is having “jumped the shark,“ but it is incredibly hard not to get sucked in again to the rich, complex world with fascinating characters, exquisitely well performed. Thanks to GraphicAudio‘s exceptional production values and extraordinary performances, there are moments of true pathos and grandeur. It’s also one of GraphicAudio‘s largest stories, this first half running fully nine hours. It is ironic, considering the story is entirely visual – centered around light itself – that it takes a radio drama to make the story glow.

The drama earns a proper R-rating for its steady use of strong language and sexuality. Both, however, are appropriate to the story, and not simply trying for a more edgy tone.
Can't wait for the next book by Catie (Posted on 6/15/2017)
After waiting very expectantly for more than a year, we were a little disappointed. The production was as good as we have come to expect from Graphic Audio, but the story itself left something to be desired. It ends in a cliffhanger and barely moved the story forward, but we are anxious to see what happens next.

Awesome by Travis (Posted on 5/16/2017)
Richard Rohan is by far my favorite narrator. His voice is perfect of fantasy epic. The rest of the cast is great a swell. Joe Back gives life to Kip perfectly. Yasmin Tuazon and Ren Casey are both great as Teia and Tisis. Christopher Scheeren is the perfect Gavin Guile. And Alyssa Wilmoth IS Karris.

GA's adaption of Brent Weeks' work is great. The sound effects and music combined with the dialogue is spot on, definitely making it a movie in your mind.
Great Production For A Great Book by Justin (Posted on 5/6/2017)
If you've made it this far in Light Bringer, then you know how awesome this series is. awesome enough to purchase all of the parts, and listen to them again and again. When you hit play for this next installment, it will not disappoint... Mostly.

There is one significant change to this production, which may have been unavoidable but still hurts it. The actor who plays Zymun and Quentin is gone. That's right, gone. He's not in here at all. The replacement for Quentin was alright. He did an admirable job, considering he was thrust into a character he had no experience with in the past. But the replacement for Zymun? In this production, Zymun has gone from being 17 years old to maybe 45, and has smoked more cigarettes. I have no idea what they were thinking, but I did not want the evil kandra from Mistborn playing Zymun. Luckily, there's only one scene where he has a good portion of dialogue, so it saved the character in my mind, and maybe gives them a chance to bring back his original actor.

The only other negative thing was a small, picky one about sound design. There's a scene where a character bashes his head into a wall until a tooth comes out. From the sound design, you would think he smashed his skull in and brains scattered everywhere. it was unnecessarily gory.

Now the positives. First, the story itself is awesome, because it's Brent Weeks. Enough said. Second, I have to point out Alyssa Wilmoth. She really came into her role as Karris, and it is beautiful. Karen Novac did a fantastic job, but watching our new actress play The White is fantastic! So congratulations to her. And third, Ren Casey. She came into her role as Tysis in this installment. In the past, she's only played a minor character in the series, so she didn't have much material to work with. But now that Tysis is at the forefront of the action, Cacey took off. And I love it! Fourth, music. Fantastic music. Keep it up!

Definitely worth the money I spent. Thank you Graphic Audio for another fantastic production!

The Lightbringer Saga- Blood Mirror by Steven (Posted on 4/30/2017)
Good start to this book, wouldnt miss this if you have listened to the other parts. The voice of Zyman was completely different and something also changed with the voice of Karris. Still enjoyed it greatly.

I just listened to "The Blood Mirror" part 1of 2. It among my favorites in my GA collection of over 300 titles.
A magnificent study in madness! by Patrick (Posted on 4/21/2017)
Unexpected promotions, religious and philosophical discussions, not-so-everyday relationship problems, lack of self-knowledge, a mayor conflict between subjective self-image and objective facts - and best of all - a study in madness!

Nice to get a whole 9.5 hours in one download, making the listening experience last much longer.
The Lightbringer Saga- Blood Mirror by Briana (Posted on 4/20/2017)
I've love these books! The characters and the never ending suspense the author delivers with each book. This is book is amazing! (What I did not like was that I think Teia's voice was changed to another actress, However is does in no way take from the story). Gavin Guile has had the ultimate turn of fortune, Karass is living to her potential and is a great woman. Her character and positions in this story make her very relatable. Teia is a double agent and good at it, and Kip, Kip is as we thought. So much more than he is willing to acknowledge! I can not wait for more of this story. I have this book on audible and Graphic Audio and I adore this story so much I will get T-shirts made just to make a statement of how awesome it is!
2 Part Review by Tyler (Posted on 3/31/2017)
Firstly, for those thinking of picking up this series, definitely do it. I love these books so much that I not only bought the hardcover of The Blood Mirror, but also the audiobook AND the GraphicAudio production, its that good.
Secondly, for this part in particular, I loved this book, almost every character has a voice that just makes them come alive. I have only 2 issues, the voice actor who normally plays Ironfist had a one or two line part in this and it was quite jarring to hear Ironfist's voice from a different character but that's a momentary break of immersion that quickly passed. The other issue is that they changed the actor who portrayed Zymun, his original voice was spot on, smug and arrogant in an "I'm better than everyone around me" kind of way, this new person is the same one who played Wit from the Stormlight Archive series, he's got a fantastic voice, I just don't think it fits for Zymun who is a terrible person literally trying to seduce his estranged mother, whereas this new voice has a feel to it that's more... Lovable scamp, which is not fitting at all. Overall beyond those minor issues, this was a phenomenal production, Joe Brack as Kip Guile is an absolutely perfect choice, even when reading these books I hear his voice, the story is captivating enough to merit multiple formats and multiple rereads/re-listens. Can't wait for the second half of The Blood Mirror and I'm even more excited to see the series' conclusion. 4/5 only wish they would have kept the original Zymun actor, I don't know the reason for the change but oh well, still loved it.
