For fans of Brent Weeks, Joe Ambercrombie, and Brandon Sanderson

The northern wastes.

A land of death and Shadow where only the strongest survive. Yet that is where Caim must go to follow the mystery at the heart of his life. Armed with only his knives and his companions, he plunges into a world of eternal night where the sun is never seen and
every hand is turned against him.

Caim has buried his father's sword and found some measure of peace, but deep in the north an unfathomable power lays waiting. To succeed on this mission, Caim will have to more than just survive. He must face the Shadow's Master.


Praise for the series:

"Fans of Brent Weeks and Brandon Sanderson will certainly find plenty to like here."
—The Mad Hatter's Bookshelf & Book Review

"This book IS action. . . . The pacing, action, and characters are all well written,
and really that is what the focus is on for this novel. . . .
We'll read his stuff readily, every time. So should you."
—Elitist Book Reviews

"The intrigue, action scenes, and ever-more-revealing character insights are masterfully woven together in a book the reader won't want to put down. . . . Overall, a first-rate sword-and-sorcery tale, with intriguing characters, that moves at a fast pace."
