"The perfect killer has no friends--only targets"
The Way of Shadows
Pages: 677
Author: Brent Weeks

Good for Assassins Creed Fans!

Back of the book summary:
'For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art--and he is
the city's most accomplished artist.

For Azoth, survival is precarious. 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 back on his
old life and embrace a new destiny and name. As
Kylar Stern, he must learn to navagate the assassins'
world of dangerous politics and strange magics--and
cultivate a flair of death.

"I was mesmerized from start to finish. Unforgettable
characters, a plot that kept me guessing, nonstop
action, and the kind of in-depth storytelling that
makes me admire a writer's work."
-Terry Brooks, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author-


---------------------------

This is the first in a triple series, with the other booked titled: Shadow's Edge and Beyond the Shadow. I can't reveal much since I'm only 167 pages in but...

Azoth, the main character and 11 yrs old, a simple guild rat who really needs a better life than his current trashed one. He hangs out with his friends "Jarl" and "Doll Girl" (many odd names in this book). His leader is a guy named "Rat" , a 16 yr old jerk. Eventually Azoth stumbles upon Durzo and wishes to be an apprentice. After being bugged enough, Durzo gives him one condition...
Spoiler:
 

I would seriously reccomend this book. I hate reading but I love this. My only complaint his how some characters are introduced way to fast. You'll be reading and say something like "Who the ---- is that?"

Your good at bumping dead stuff, but it was a worthwhile post.

I still haven't finished it, I'm a little past half way through the 1st book but my head just said "Stop reading, you hate reading" so its still sitting over on the shelf.

However from what I've read the plot remains good. I also talked to another one of my friends who go to the 3rd book and says its a great series.

Boredom takes its toll, and if you don't want me to post, either lock or move the topics out to the recycling bin is what I've been saying ^__^ I was also fascinated by this series and you happened to post a recommendation thread for it. I do not believe I'll ever let you catch me bumping a dead thread that doesn't have its worth ~ ;3

Haha, I do that to my books as well... they would just sit on the shelf after I've started them, a few years later, I come back and bored, I finish reading (or the cycle continues). I got tired of being disappointed in long series of books. Thanks ~
