Update It s a bit sad but not really surprising that I have to defend my position after giving multiple examples especially after plenty of other people have come forward and agreed.I m not going to argue with people who haven t read the book seriously There s a huge difference between a sexist world character and a sexist author.An author is able to create a fantasy world with a different map, magic system, religion but can t help himself and has to respect the status quo about sexism It s what he knows and he might not even realize it but damn does it get frustrating and frankly boring In any world even a sexist one , there would be at least one person who feels differently.It s too convenient to excuse it by saying it s fiction so yes I will call it out when I see it.Plenty of authors are able to write well rounded characters from any gender The opposite sex is not alien Plenty of authors are able to write characters that are monstrous or sexist without seeming sexist themselves Don Peters from Sleeping Beauties anyone.Every word was a choice No one forced the author to write about ridiculously debilitating period for the main female character No one forced him to tell us about how physically attractive each female character was or if their breasts and nipples were satisfying enough.A simple line with a female character rolling her eyes at a male character for being sexist would have been enough to make me not mention any of this.Instead we have a main strong female character who spends a whole battle in a revealing dress that oh so inconveniently split open at the thigh and is apparently still hung up on a man she hasn t been with in over 15 years The fact that only men have had an issue with my opinion says it all Take a second to think about it.I m a little torn here.I really like the ideas in this book The world and magic system are different and fascinating You will need to push yourself to read the first 100 pages before it gets better The magic system is confusing until then The writing isn t the best, same with the dialogues but the sexism is what is ruining it for me.I could tell you which women are the prettiest in order and who has the best boobs Literally.Real descriptions in the book Woman who is forty is still beautiful and has nice skin even though she s starting to have wrinkles Really What about the guy next to her No He s fine Ok.Woman who is forty has saggy breast Really Did I need to know that Does the man next to her have saggy balls You won t tell us that uh Ok What s up with the obsession of 40 years old women At one point, one of the main character, Kip, a horny 15 years old insecure fat boy, thinks to himself, after falling, that he seems to spend time on his back than a whore who thinks this is funny Adding one someone just reminded me of During a battle, Kip falls face first into the cleavage of a woman how inconvenient I loved how much it added to the story What really annoyed me though was the main female character She is a badass fighter part of the Blackguard and has great magical powers But the poor girl is insecure about her manly shoulders.Are you freaking kidding me Anyway I did like the overall story, I m not sure it truly deserve my 4 stars so I ll reduce it to 3 but I really wanted to love thisI will be continuing the series but I m disappointed.Review AMAZING You know you are reading a masterpiece when out of 95 chapters and 5 different POVs, not even one is slightly boring I have heard a lot of things about Brent Weeks second trilogy, and most of them have been proved true so far He has grown up as an author, improving not only his prose and narration but his imagination as wellYou might want to think twice before you try to use a man s conscience against him It may turn out he doesn t have one The Black Prism is absolutely a work of art The world building is exceptional, the magic is system complex yet easy to understand, and the characters are well crafted and masterfully developed The real gem of the book though is the story itself If i had to explain what Epic Fantasy means, The Black Prism would be my example A thing that characterizes all of Brent s work is the tremendous mix of fun and action, giving you a laughing fit at the most inappropriate of times Worth mentioning is the juggling of several compelling and intertwining POVs with a straightforward prose, while the subaqueous qualities of the facture contextualize not only the characters but the society s structure as well If you call yourself a fantasy fan, The Black Prism should be the next book in your TBR list.You can find of my reviews over at
