If you enjoyed the Night Angel Trilogy you will love The Black Prism. Brent Weeks brings a completely new world to life with one of the most innovative magic systems I've seen to date. All magic sprouts from the manipulation of light. Each color has different properties and can be used to different effect or even combined in interesting ways. Some mages (drafters) are able to use more than one color, but only on The Prism has access to all the colors.
The characters are endearing and the banter between them is quite funny at times. Once the groundwork for the world, magic system and politics are established the book really starts to get interesting. I almost finished it in one sitting and as the end got closer I started wishing for more pages!
The only downside is that, unlike the Night Angel Trilogy, the rest of the books in the series still need to be written, so it's a much longer wait to find out what happens next.
Highly recommended to any fantasy fans! by Kerneels Mulder
