THE UNDERWORLD TREMBLES AT THE RISE OF THE SUN...

In book #5 of the Shadowdance series... a night of fire and blood heralds Muzien the Darkhand's arrival to Veldaren. With him comes the might of the Sun Guild, eager to spread their criminal empire.

Left blind after being attacked by the Widow, Alyssa Gemcroft struggles to hold together the remnants of the Trifect as the Sun Guild's arrival threatens to shatter whatever future her son might have left.

Veldaren's only hope is in the Watcher, but Haern is no longer there. With his father, Thren Felhorn, he is traveling to the Stronghold, an ancient bastion of the dark paladins of Karak. Will they find the answers they seek? Or will the Stronghold be their final destination?

Killer or savior; the line can no longer remain blurred.


Fantasy author David Dalglish continues his tale of retribution and darkness in this never-before-released novel in the Shadowdance series, following A Dance of Shadows.

Many times 4 or 5 books into a long series, an author seems to run out of steam. The plot lags, the characters do not evolve and they become one note. It has not happened here. Dance of Ghosts draws you in and rivets you to an intriguing, tension building story with a fast action ending. I highly recommend this series to everyone who loves fantasy.

This book took much longer to get interesting than the previous books in the series. It also didn't have a very satisfying ending, in that no major story arc was closed. Basicallythis book largely felt like itwas settingup the final book and isn't so satisfying on its own.
