A Dance of Blades

A Dance of Blades

It’s been five long years since the city learned to fear…

The war between the thief guilds and the powerful allegiance known as the Trifect has slowly dwindled. Now only the mysterious Haern is left to wage his private battle against the guilds in the guise of the Watcher – a vicious killer who knows no limits. But when the son of Alyssa Gemcroft, one of the three leaders of the Trifect, is believed murdered, the slaughter begins anew. Mercenaries flood the streets with one goal in mind: find and kill the Watcher.

Peace or destruction; every war must have its end.

Fantasy author David Dalglish spins a tale of retribution and darkness, and an underworld reaching for ultimate power.

FANTASY BOOK CRITIC on A DANCE OF CLOAKS
Dalglish is well on his way to join the ranks of Peter V. Brett and Brent Weeks as influential authors in a new generation of fantasy
FANTASY FACTION
Dalglish concocts a heady cocktail of energy, breakneck pace and excitement that a reader could get drunk on
Sam Sykes, author of TOMB OF THE UNDERGATES
A winning combination of A Game of Thrones, sword-and-sorcery RPGs, and vivid description . . . The point of view shifts continually, encompassing bit players and major characters from every angle of the struggle, and Dalglish handles his cast of thousands with aplomb . . . this is a fun read. Dalglish puts familiar pieces together with a freshness and pleasure that are contagious
