Character List for the Night Angel Trilogy

The Night Angel Trilogy Omnibus will be officially released on Tuesday (though some of you may find it at your bookseller early). In order to give you more reasons to think about clearing some space on your shelf for this, than simply fantastic new cover art and a reworked map, I wanted to give you extra.  Specifically, Extras: things that I either didn’t have time to include when I was editing three books at once in the run-up to the rapid publication of the trilogy a few years ago, or things that I had cut, but with the benefit of hindsight have reconsidered.

There’s a rumor that when production heard that I wanted to add 62 pages of extras to a book that was already more than 1,200 pages long that the echoes of the wailing resounded through the 14 floors of the Hachette building for two weeks. Reports that an intern burned through two pairs of Manolo Blahniks in her marathons back and forth to Starbucks are, however, completely unsubstantiated. For one thing, I hear the interns at Hachette wear Christian Louboutin.

However, I prevailed. Not only did I get permission to add that new content, I also got permission to share two parts of it with you for free! You know, just in case you’re a poor, poor student or something, but a big, big fan, I want to do all I can to help you out. You will buy lots of my books when you make your millions, right? Right? Bueller? Anyway, today, I’m happy to share the NAT Character List HERE. It will also live under the “Extras” tab, and you can also find the link on the “Night Angel- The Complete Trilogy” page.

Because things like Character Lists and Glossaries tend to be really boring — most of the reason that I didn’t include them in The Night Angel Trilogy originally was because I never read them myself — I thought I would do something to spice this up. There’s a little meta-fiction happening here that is best understood if you read both the Glossary and the Character List together, but… well, I’ve got to leave some tricks up my sleeve.

Hope you enjoy it!

    This is great! But you left off the 2 most asked about: Kyler and Vi! Eats is the official word on those?

  2. Adam says:

    The real question is who won the copies from your Facebook page? /crosses fingers 🙂

  5. syku says:

    That was fantastic! Thank you so much for including those. I haven’t read the books for about a year now and this just reminded me how much I love them, and you, of course, :D. I’m so excited about the other extras.

  6. Fuu says:

    Ahhhhh this makes me wanna get the omnibus so much! Unfortunately I’ve already overspent on books this month (and next) so I’ll suck it in and wait till my wallet is healthy again. Or hope I get lucky….

    I’m curious: how much does the book weigh?

    I think Elene Cromwyll is missing from the list, because if you look at Doll Girl’s info it just says ‘See ELENE CROMWYLL’.

    I would hope that she isn’t missing in the actual list in the book, seeing as she is a pretty essential character.

    1. Brent Weeks says:

      Gah! True!
      I mean, the scholar figured even a moron like the minstrel would know who Elene was!
      OR… Ha, that stupid scholar. He’s a total screw-up, isn’t he? Couldn’t even get Elene right!
      OR… Oh yeah, we’ll fix that in reprints! 😉

    Is there any chance of the Omnibus being released in an e-book format?

  9. Tyler says:

    These are the best books I’ve ever read. I like reading them over and over again 🙂
    Definitely going to be getting this ASAP!

    That’s me!!

    I just ordered the omnibus today; will the glossary and character list contain any spoilers ? I’m always afraid to look in the back of books.

    Thanks, I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.

    1. brent says:

      Nope. No spoilers!
