A few months ago I was given a copy of The Judging Eye. It's been a great book, but it was obvious right away that I had a lot to catch up on. At the end of the book was a quick 6 page review which helped a lot.

So my question would be for anyone who has read The Prince of Nothing series and The Judging Eye and can let me know if I am missing much. Does The Judging Eye stand on it's own with a quick update about the previous books?


No, I do not think that you should read The Judging Eye without reading the The Prince of Nothing series. Although many things are explained at the beginning of The Judging Eye, but I don't think you will get a feel for the characters if you start reading it straight away. Take the time to read The Prince of Nothing series, they are a great read. Also, I would like to point out that The Prince of Nothing ends in a good manner, so reading it would bring you more pleasure than reading the first book of the unfinished series.

  • That is what I figured. The first 50 pages were kinda rough. Unfortunately I am already 3/4 of the way through The Judging Eye, but let this question stand for future generations to not repeat my mistake. – Justin C Mar 11 '11 at 0:18
