The perfect killer has no friends. Only targets.

For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art. And he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir.

For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums, and learned the hard way 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.

***Also available as a graphic novel adaptation, coming April 2014***


  • Excellent

    By K1costello
    Couldn't put the book down. Gripping from start to finish.
  • Story good, writing style not so good.

    By NteyB
    While the story was good, I found myself frustrated with the authors writing style. It seemed to read as if it was translated from chinese or japanese…. too short and sharp with the phrasing. The conversations between characters were confusing, and so many sentences that would have made a lot more sense to use a comma instead of a period after 4 words. I won’t be continuing with this series of books.

  • A new fav!

    By Atkogirl
    Just finished book one and loved it. Truly good fantasy is hard to come by these days, but this book had me hooked in a way that only my old favorites usually can. I loved the storyline and the characters and can't wait to read the next one now. I applaud Weeks ability to draw me in and feel so connected to the characters in just one book. Love it
  • Awesome read!!

    By Ufinkuknw
    Amazing, in-depth storytelling. Once you feel you get the story and think "yeah, i can predict what might happen next" then BOOM! Another twist to the story. It kept me guessing and at most times, in awe. I read back on several parts of the story just so I can get an instant replay of the awesomeness I just pictured in my mind. Great trilogy! I HIGHY RECOMMEND YOU READ ALL THREE BOOKS! I assure you, you will not be disappointed.
  • The Trilogy of Legend

    By A Random Person :P
    This was the first Book that I've actually read from start to finish. And I loved every second of it. Listen to me when I say "Read It". Take it from a guy who hated reading books. From the first time you are introduced to Kyler you instantly get hooked on him (metaphorically of course). Either way you look at it this series is too damn good. Unforgettable Characters, witty and hilarious remarks and true in depth storytelling that literally throws you into this world in your head. I'd give the whole series a 10 out of 10 but there's only 5 stars, so I give the whole series a 5 out if 5.

    I love this book and the trilogy. A story that is set in the slums of a city. A great point of view and a gripping story. If you have the money then I recommend you read it
