What the community says about The Way of Shadows (Night Angel)
- "I was looking for an action novel for my book club and I came across The Way of Shadows book written by New York Times best-selling author Brent Weeks. It was the perfect book that had the blend of drama and action as the story about Azothh, the assassin unfolds. My book club members really enjoyed it and we ha some great discussions on it later."
- "Brent Weeks is a pretty hot author now and this is the first in a popular series. Let me just get this out of the way: if you are attracted to this because of Assassin's Creed, it's probably because you like that atmosphere and you will probably like this too. But! It's a totally different story."

- "The Way of Shadows is the first book in the Night Angel trilogy, written by Brent Weeks. This is a story about Azoth, who became an assassin under the name of Kylar Stern. Its well written and one that I couldn't put it down. I love this author, and can't wait for the next installment to come out. "
- "A book that tries to get you engaged on the story but never really accomplishes its goal since the development of the characters is null. There appears to be a pre requisite to read this because as your reading you would have to fill in things you read from other series to understand were the author is coming from. "

- "A Way of Shadows definitely has its share of assassins, starting with the main characters, Kylar Stern and Durzo Blint. There's lots of unique characters in this entertaining book but I can't remember any notable female assassins. If you're seeking a book primarily about female assassins, I would look elsewhere. "
