The Underworld rules the city of Veldaren. Thieves, smugglers, assassins… they fear only one man.
High on my to-be-read list is A Dance of Cloaks by David Dalglish, now re-released by Orbit Books. It's a dark, gritty, hard-edged tale of assassins and gangsters, magic and intrigue. Dalglish self-published the book a few years back, and it did very well. Now he's worked with Orbit to significantly improve a manuscript that was already quite solid.
The Shadowdance series continues in A Dance of Blades and A Dance of Mirrors.
