by Brent Weeks

Prosigue la saga fantástica creada por Brent Weeks, auténtico autor revelación del género y todo un descubrimiento para los amantes de las novelas de fantasía épica, que la consideran una de las mejores que se han escrito en los últimos años, por la riqueza y complejidad tanto de la historia como de sus personajes, y el realismo y la crudeza con que están tratados.Tras El camino de las sombras, que nos introducía en el rico universo mítico y onírico del reino de Cenaria, en la segunda entrega ya se ha consumado la invasión de dicho reino a manos de los ejércitos de Khalidor. La población ha sido sometida, y el único foco de resistencia es el Sakagé, la gran organización del hampa. Su única esperanza es convencer a Kylar, el asesino más letal del reino, de que se una a la causa. Pero Kylar ya había decidido abandonar para siempre el reino de las sombras y vivir en paz con su nueva familia.

El camino de las sombras (El ángel de la noche 1)

by Brent Weeks

El asesino perfecto no tiene amigos, sino objetivos.La muerte es un arte, y Durzo Blint lo ejecuta a la perfección, sea en una callejuela oscura o en las grandes estancias de palacio. Incluso el poderoso Sakagé, la organización criminal que mueve los hilos y los intereses en la ciudad de Cenaria, le respeta.La vida carece de valor si se ha nacido en las calles, y para Azoth la única manera de escapar a la miseria y el miedo que siempre le han acompañado es ser temido antes que temer, matar antes de que le maten. Si quiere sobrevivir, debe convencer a Blint de que le acepte como aprendiz.Pero aprender a asesinar con el mejor exige más que un duro adiestramiento. Hay que cambiar de identidad. Hay que olvidar el pasado y aquello en que se creía. Hay que aprender a moverse como las sombras en un mundo de intrigas donde nobles, plebeyos y criminales son meras piezas en una partida que acaba de empezar.

Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks' New York Times bestselling Night Angel trilogy. "I got a bit of prophecy," the old assassin said. "Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you're here, I see they're all you. Durzo Blint." Durzo Blint? Gaelan had never even heard the name. ***Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He's also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he's worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he's become a hero, his very names passing into legend: Acaelus Thorne, Yric the Black, Hrothan Steelbender, Tal Drakkan, Rebus Nimble. But when Gaelan must take a job hunting down the world's finest assassins for the beautiful courtesan-and-crimelord Gwinvere Kirena, what he finds may destroy everything he's ever believed in.Word count: ~17,000
