Take a look at these fantastic Night Angel sword and dagger designs, created by IG user @dexterweeks!
Behold: some of the (many awesome) submissions we received for our #BattleWornBooks contest!
We’ve tried to include as many as possible for you all to enjoy. (Note that if you submitted more than one photo, we chose one to put up on the site here; and we may have edited your caption for length as well.)
Thanks to all who participated!
Oh… you want to know who the winners are?
The GRAND PRIZE Winner… who will receive the Subterranean Press edition (the very, very limited edition!) of Perfect Shadow… is Shadow Neconish!
Shadow edges all others by (1) having carried this book through legitimately super hard places (2) claiming to have the name “Shadow” and (3) by showing an appreciation for the fine art of leaving his readers begging for more. “Wait, what? What happened? And you came back? When? Why?”
Here are the Top 5 Winners — who will each receive a Brand-New Author-Signed Set of The Night Angel Trilogy:
19 times is… a lot of times. Plus, this picture is just so darn Christmas-y!
Aw, I’m just a sucker for a love story. Right, you guys? (But, how did you not kill each other if one of you is a faster reader and had to wait at every page?)
To me that book looks suspicious. It’s paper… it’s paper, and yet standing there like it had nothing to do with what happened here. (But seriously, sorry. Fires suck.)
This one almost won Grand Prize. This is what I call Playing the Man, not the Game. I’ve been a parent, so I know how that feels. Also, well done!
It’s just… so darn pretty.
And here are (many) of the rest for your viewing pleasure!

#BattleWornBooks I feel kinda bad because the originals were so damaged from use that I got this one. It’s been on MULTIPLE trips, taken to work, taken to play rehearsals, and read a grand total of maybe 15 times. As you can see, almost done with the 16th go-around 😉 @BrentWeeks pic.twitter.com/tBEIFOCoRm

Here’s my #battlewornbooks Night Angel trilogy. It would be more worn if it’s weight and general massiveness didn’t discourage me from bringing it more places 😅 Luckily my library has a wonderful ebook collection. pic.twitter.com/cmltddvSJT

Okay. I see Brent Week’s #BattleWornBooks tag and I raise you one.
Books aren’t in the worst of shape but! I still have the super exclusive Barnes and Noble promo Comic that was only available for a limited time to go with.

I started reading these books during my freshman year of high school, and they’d be the only books I read (of my own will) those 4 years. I’d finish and restart. It got to the point where I’d grab one and open it and random and know right where I was in the story #BattleWornBooks pic.twitter.com/IvYKYqWW7H

If you’re at Comic-Con this year, head over to the Orbit Books booth (2218) to pick up one of these sweet Perfect Shadow buttons!
The novella prequel to the Night Angel trilogy, PERFECT SHADOW is now available for pre-order in a beautiful new hardcover edition! This novella–it’s not a full-length novel!–has previously been available as an ebook and audiobook, so this edition is meant for those of you who prefer to read a book on paper, and enjoy another gorgeous cover gracing your shelves and completing your collection. (If you prefer digital or want to check out a sample before the November 7th publication date of the hardcover, the digital versions remain available, and still for the same low prices.)
Also included will be a bonus short story (“I, Night Angel”) that’s never before been published in physical format. If you’d like to hear more about why I chose to publish this now (or, heck, at all!), fill in your email in the banner above to get my newest newsletter and hear all the gory details. (I send only about 4 notes each year.)
Here’s the blurb:
Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks’ New York Times bestselling Night Angel trilogy.
“I got a bit of prophecy,” the old assassin said. “Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you’re here, I see they’re all you. Durzo Blint.”
Durzo Blint? Gaelan had never even heard the name.
Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He’s also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he’s worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he’s become a hero, his very names passing into legend: Acaelus Thorne, Yric the Black, Hrothan Steelbender, Tal Drakkan, Rebus Nimble.
But when Gaelan must take a job hunting down the world’s finest assassins for the beautiful courtesan-and-crimelord Gwinvere Kirena, what he finds may destroy everything he’s ever believed in.
(Because I’m weird, PERFECT SHADOW is set before the events of The Night Angel trilogy, but is best read afterward.)
For those of you who love books defaced by the actual physical pen of the author, in the US, Barnes & Noble is doing a special print run of signed copies, and I’m delighted that Barnes & Noble is going to be offering these for no additional cost! (To you. My hand is really tired.) These will be available exclusively through BN.com–so please don’t haunt your friendly local B&N asking for copies if you miss out! Pre-orders start today, but stock is limited. (Those will ship on publication date, November 7th.)
(Collectors outside the US: because BN only ships domestically, this offer is exclusively for the United States, but keep your eyes here for more news soon.)
