Overview

"Prove that you can stand against the darkness and live."

In book #4 of the Shadowdance series, Haern is the King's Watcher, born an assassin only to become the city of Veldaren's protector against the thief guilds.

When Lord Victor Kane attacks the city, determined to stamp out all corruption, foreign gangs pour in amidst the chaos in an attempt to overthrow the current lords of the underworld.

And when a mysterious killer known as the Widow begins mutilating thieves, paranoia engulfs the city. Haern knows someone is behind the turmoil, pulling strings. If he doesn't find out who — and soon — his beloved city will burn.

Light or darkness: where will the line be drawn?

Fantasy author David Dalglish spins a tale of retribution and darkness, and an underworld reaching for ultimate power in this fourth novel of the Shadowdance series, previously released as Blood of the Underworld.

    All of David Daglish's books are the kind of books you want to r

    All of David Daglish's books are the kind of books you want to read in one day. I have yet to read one of his books I didn't love. Some if the writing is dark but that is what makes his work unique.

    I barely discovered David Dalgish and his Shadow Dance series 6

    I barely discovered David Dalgish and his Shadow Dance series 6 months ago, he is the first and only author where I have read his books in two or three days!
    If you are niche is fast passed, break neck action scenes, where the hero isinternally tormented by demons from his past; then A Dance of Shadows is well worth your dollar and time. I absolutely love his books and especially a Dance of Shadows. I guareente you will refuse to put down in this book (or any others from his Shadow Dance series).
