The third book in the Lightbringer series, the blockbuster fantasy epic from international bestseller Brent Weeks As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who might still end a civil war before it engulfs the known world. But Gavin Guile has been captured by an old enemy and enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism - he can't use magic at all. Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will face a master of shadows as his grandfather moves to choose a new Prism and put himself in power. With Teia and Karris, Kip will have to use all his wits to survive a secret war between noble houses, religious factions, rebels and an ascendant order of hidden assassins called The Broken Eye.

The Blood Mirror is the action-packed fourth novel in the Lightbringer series by international bestseller Brent Weeks. The Seven Satrapies have collapsed into four - and those are falling before the White King's armies. Gavin Guille, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken and trapped in a prison crafted by his own magical genius. But Gavin has no magic at all. Worse, in this prison, he may not be alone. Who will fight to prevent a tainted empire from becoming something even worse?
