You guys should read the Night Angel Trilogy. It's really good. You'll love it.

Huh, I didn't think I'd see that book on this website.

Or anywhere else on the internet, for that matter.

You know, except for websites like BarnesandNobles

I actually have it, and I read the first book. Idunno, I've never been one for brutal, gritty stories, I find stuff like The Ranger's Apprentice more interesting. It was a pretty nice story though.

Well I just happen to read them while growing up, and as such, I really grew with the books. The first couple of books are mostly like kids action/fantasy books, and then they get grittier and grittier. I was the perfect age for reading them

I live in Denmark, and the translation is pretty well done. I actually don't think I could buy the books in English, even if I wanted to...
I also really love the Skandians, they're so badass. And they're basically Danes too, they're like my neighbors xD

its definetly one of my favorites. And my favorite things to do with these type of books, or any trilogies or sagas, is to re-read them like 3 times. I've read all the LOTR books, and The Hobbit, at least 4 times.

Yeah it's by far one of my favorite book series. I mean, the characters are amazing, I've always loved such apprenticeship-stories, and their adventures are just great. I've read and reread that series more than I should have, but I haven't read the newest books. I really don't read even a tenth of what I used to, it kinda sucks ._.

I don't know which books i like better, between this trilogy and the lightbringer trilogy, but MY GOODNESS are these books fantastic.

I've read pretty much all and any fantasy books, like LOTR, The Hobbit, i mean, alot of stuff. Also a recommendation, The Coldfire trilogy is a VERY good read. Sorry, nerding out here, but now that I know other people enjoy these books on Fj it makes me happy

Oh and the ending of Beyond the Shadows made me cry. and I am a man. No shame, no shame at all.

The first one was amazing, the second one was great, and the third one got a little too generic fantasy for my tastes. I mean book one set the whole tone as an assassin story about the ******** that is the warren's and such, but by the time we got to Azoth (or Kyler, whatever you prefer) being some noble magical ultra being of justice it started to get a little cheesy.

i have been interested, but it's the book at the store that NEVER has the first volume. can i get further encouragement besides ninjas to read this?
#19 to #18 - azraelthemage

(06/09/2013) [-]
It's not about ninjas. It's a fantasy story. The back of the first volume reads as follows:

"For Durzo Blin, assassinaiton is an art - and he is the city's most accomplished artist.

For Azoth, survival is prcarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned 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 to cultivate a flair for death".

Basically, it's about an assassin living in a city full of conspiracy and murder. If you like Game of Thrones, you'll like this. And no, you're not gonna find similarities with Assassin's Creed. In fact, the main character breaks every rule in the book when it comes to how Altair, Ezio, and Connor lived.
