“Kip crawled toward the battlefield in the darkness, the mist pressing down, blotting out sound, scattering starlight.”

The Black Prism is the first book in Nick Weeks’s Lightbringer series and packs quite a lot into its 626 pages. The story takes place in a world where some people are born with the ability to use colors of light to create magic. These people are known as drafters; the most powerful of whom is called The Prism. He is the spiritual leader of the seven satrapies, one for each color of the spectrum, and when it is discovered that the current Prism fathered a bastard son, the world of many characters gets thrown on its head.
