 The Blinding Knife (Lightbringer, #2)

4/5 stars

Blurb: Gavin Guile is dying.

He’d thought he had five years left—now he has less than one. With fifty thousand refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies.

Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole sixteen years ago.

I'll just say this and get it over with. This was an annoying read, that I really liked. You know those types of books... beloved characters, forced into a plot that doesn't really work, with clever writing and moments of pure genius... then something happens that doesn't work for you. This was that type of story.
