From "New York Times" bestselling author Brent Weeks...
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 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.

About the Author
Brent Weeks, ne en Arizona, passa quelque temps a parcourir le monde comme Caine, le heros de Kung Fu, a s'occuper d'un bar et a corrompre la jeunesse (mais pas en meme temps), avant de commencer a ecrire sur des serviettes en papier de restaurants. Enfin, un jour, quelqu'un decida de le payer pour ca. Deconcertante de maitrise, sa trilogie de L'Ange de la Nuit signa ainsi le coup d'envoi de sa carriere.

Praise For The Way of Shadows

"What a terrific story! I was mesmerized from start to finish. Unforgettable characters, a plot that kept me guessing, non-stop action and the kind of in-depth storytelling that makes me admire a writer's work." --- Terry Brooks

"Kylar is a wonderful character - sympathetic and despicable, cowardly and courageous, honorable and unscrupulous...a breathtaking debut!" --- Dave Duncan
