But Gavin has no magic at all. She assumes the Prism is blackmailing him with her life, and silently vows to make him pay. This city is governed by a monarchy and this means that leadership is passed from one generation to the next without question. Structure, rules, and hierarchy are important to blues. I think it's going to be more complicated than what we're guessing. As a writer and editor, the overuse of passive voice was just too much.

Check out the cover of The Burning White by Brent Weeks. Each different color of luxin has its own strength, weight, and even smell: blue luxin is hard, red is gooey, yellow is liquid, etc. The use of chi isn't well explored within the 4th book for its functional purpose yet, although it is shown to reveal bones and metal. They don't so much disrespect authority as not even recognize it.

The story takes place in The Seven Satrapies, 7 semi-autonomous countries, surrounding a large sea; each satrapy is ruled by a 'satrap'. Their oldest child, Jesse Kellerman, is a bestselling novelist and award-winning playwright. At this point they attempt to incorporate luxin into their own bodies. Dead black luxin is also known as Obsidian which is also known as Hellstone. Gavin Dazen drafted white luxin in the battle for Garriston while attempting to defend the gap in the Brightwater Wall where the gate should have been. The uses are as varied as the drafter is creative: from furniture to projectiles to shields to the throwing arms of war engines.

The one thing about Weeks is that he loves reading fantasy novels and history. Thereafter, he focused his energies on writing his first novel that was released in the year 2008.

The Black Prism

He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. This book can simply be described as awesome! He had not known of his son's existence until this point. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism - he can't use magic at all. In The Blood Mirror, chi is described as being past ultraviolet on the spectrum, like paryl is just past sub-red. The Chromeria is also the seat of education and regulation for the color magic on which the series is based. The Prism can draft every color of Luxin, and does not require colored glasses as he possesses the unique ability to split white light into its component colors.

In fact, he has confessed if given chances there are some things he would change in his earlier books. After getting his paper keys from Hillsdale College, Brent had brief stints walking the earth like Caine from Kung Fu, tending bar, and corrupting the youth. They are just in time to save a teenager from being executed, killing several of the Satrap's personal bodyguards in the process. But even as drafters change the world, the luxin changes them too, physically, mentally, and emotionally. To most drafters, drafting isn't just a way of life, it is their life, and therefore most drafters elect to be Freed. Not at the same time.
