The Way of Shadows
by Brent Weeks 

 

Goodreads | Amazon
Series: Night Angel #1
Published: October 1st 2008
Rating: Lots of violence. Like a whole lot. Also problematic representation of... maybe everything, but especially women.

“Do you know what punishments I've endured for my crimes, my sins? None. I am proof of the absurdity of men's most treasured abstractions. A just universe wouldn't tolerate my existence.”

Series: Night Angel #2
Published: November 1st 2008
Rating: Why do I like the weird cannibal subplot so much? Representation actually worse?

"Why is it, my shadow-striding friend, that we don't fear dreams? We lose consciousness, lose control, things happen with no apparent logic and abiding by no apparent rules."
