Just a quick recommendation post.
The Brightest Shadow is among my favorite books in recent history, and it’s finally getting an audio edition!
Much like my own How to Defeat a Demon King in Ten Easy Steps, The Brightest Shadow is a deconstruction of the stories of heroes and dark lords – but The Brightest Shadow is a much darker take. It’s an incredible story, with engaging characters, a breathtaking world, and a fascinating unique take on a Cultivation-style magic system.
It’s also an absolute doorstopper, which is perfect for audio. I think it’s something like 400k words, or roughly 1000 pages in paperback form. Think one of Sanderson’s Stormlight Archives books – it’s massive. And much like Stormlight, it’s very, very epic.
I strongly recommend it.
