A Dance of Cloaks

A Dance of Cloaks

The Underworld rules the city of Veldaren. Thieves, smugglers, assassins . . . they fear only one man.

Thren Felhorn is the greatest assassin of his time. All the thieves’ guilds of the city are under his unflinching control. If he has his way, death will soon spill out from the shadows and into the streets.

Aaron is Thren’s son, trained to be heir to his father’s criminal empire. He’s cold, ruthless – everything an assassin should be. But when Aaron risks his life to protect a priest’s daughter from his own guild, he glimpses a world beyond poison, daggers and the iron rule of his father.

Assassin or protector; every choice has its consequences.

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

Reviews

A gritty book with intriguing characters and has a plot which will keep you hooked till the end
FANTASY BOOK CRITIC
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
