Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.
American author, Brent Weeks, had a very normal American upbringing upon being born in Whitefish, Montana in 1977. He developed a love for literature, which we all know can carry its readers to faraway places, escaping the reality of everyday living. He had a great fondness for Edgar Allen Poe, so his genre of writing was fantasy and mystery.
Weeks first novel, The Girl, was a complete failure, but as he says in his biography, skipping the boring parts, he has written eight best-selling novels. They include The Night Angel Trilogy and the Lightbringer Series for which he won several literary awards, and sold millions of copies. He also had a NYT best seller in his 2012 book, The Blinding Knife.
Weeks graduated from Hillsdale College in 2000 with an English degree. Before being a serious author, he taught briefly and was a bartender. He found his girl, Kristi Barnes, they were married and live in Oregon with their two daughters.
