Product Description


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.

See Brent Weeks's New York Times bestselling fantasy of assassins and thieves come to life in this graphic novel adaptation with art by Marvel and DC Comics artist Andy MacDonald.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Night Angel Good 6 January 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved the Night Angel Trilogy. It may be my favorite book series of them all, which is why the graphic novel did leave me a bit disappointed. I know that some things have to be lost in the compression of a book to another form of media, but for me, those losses eat away at what would have been a five star rating otherwise. The entire exclusion of the Serah subplot, as well as Magdalene, means the removal of those characters from the next book as well, which removes a large amount of the personal tragedy that Kylar experiences. In other places, it simply means the loss of some trademark humor or simply the depth of the characters.

For the standard reader, it's a great novel, but for fans of the series, it falls just a bit short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool perspective on a great series 26 February 2015
By Inferno10808 - Published on

The original book is one of my favorite fantasy fiction reads. Reading this in comic book form was actually really cool and I love the idea. Although I had a somewhat different picture of the characters and world in my head, this gave me an interesting perspective of what the author and artist wanted to create in their own minds. Also, I read the book many years ago, so this was a really nice refresher, which helped when I read the novella, The Perfect Shadow relating to Durzo's character. I really hope this Graphic Novel series continues through the entire Night Angel Trilogy as I really enjoyed this. The only complaint I would have is that I wish it were in color rather than black and white, since that would probably make it a little more palpable.

Update (4/17/15):
As a clarification, this book is a graphic novel version of only the first book of the original trilogy.

I wish the panels were in color. After reading the book and seeing the begging of the graphic novel, I am pretty sure that if you don't read the novel you will still love the graphic novel. However, I reccomend reading the novel "The Way of Shadows". It will pull you in. It single handedly brought me into the world of fantasy reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok.... But 1 September 2016
By Smitr - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you haven't read the actual books, you'll be so lost with the graphic novel. It is rediculously fast paced, and leaves out a lot of explanations. I was hoping, PRAYING that a graphic novel or manga series would be made for these books, but not like this. A far cry from a satisfying illustrative depiction. Makes me want to re-read the books again though :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could have been great 6 May 2015
By Bianca Muoio - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I can understand the need to cut plot when converting a novel into a graphic novel, but I think in this case a little too much was cut. The effect was that unless you had read the novel, the plot early on was hard to follow. This was added to by the fact that some of the characters, while well drawn, looked a little too similar to each other and added to the confusion. Use of colour and more variation to character appearance may have helped this. Also, the inclusion of a character page at the beginning of the novel as is commonly found in comic books may have assisted. Lastly, it would have been great if it had been released in three volumes rather than one so that so much of the great plot twists and turns were not lost.

Overall, still a good read, especially if you are a Brent Weeks fan. I'm looking forward to what the next instalment may be like.
