Overview

"Shadowbane is a perfect example of what is right and enduring about the Forgotten Realms: a tale of companionship, perseverance, faith, and self-exploration. With a monster and a fight scene here or there, too, in case you need a kick in the pants. You'll read it in one sitting, and then come back to see what you might have missed."
 
~ Brian Cortijo (Realms Designer, Loremaster of Cormyr)
 
 
"If you like fast-paced, thrilling stories that explore the dark shadows and alleyways of cities in the Realms, and erupt into spectacular fights, in the company of wise-cracking heroes and anti-heroes, then a Erik Scott de Bie book is for you! SHADOWBANE takes the reader along for another ride with Kalen and Myrin, this time to lawless Luskan, and it's an adventure worth reading and rereading many times! First-rate fantasy!"
 
~ Ed Greenwood (Best-Selling Author, Father of the Forgotten Realms, Living Legend)


"With its relentless pace and scenes of chilling horror and savage combat, Erik Scott de Bie's fiction evokes the work of old-school sword-and-sorcery masters like Robert E. Howard and Karl Edward Wagner, and Shadowbane is his best book yet. Don't miss it!"

~ Richard Lee Byers, author of the Forgotten Realms: Brotherhood of the Griffon series


The city of Luskan has always been a den of pirates, thieves, and murderers. But lately, things have gotten much worse. A ship crashes offshore with nothing but corpses. Every day, people go crazy and brutalize those around them. And the only signs that even the most hardened criminals still walk the streets at night are bones.
 
Luskan's sister city, Waterdeep, has sent a detachment to quarantine the unclean city—to let the filth within die, rather than infect the rest of the Realms. But Myrin has slipped inside, declaring that she will save Luskan. Shadowbane follows, determined to save Myrin and therefore her pet city—even if he has to kill every rat in Luskan to do it.
 
Shadowbane features the triumphant return of popular, dark vigilante from Downshadow and carries forth the threads of the worlds-spanning Abyssal Plague series.
 
This expanded e-book also includes a brand-new short story, entitled “A New Purpose”, as well as links to an existing prequel and an original e-novella, featuring characters from Shadowbane. Also included are links to background information on the Abyssal Plague series and sample chapters from other books in the series.

Meet the Author

ERIK SCOTT DE BIE lives in the Seattle area with his wife, two cats, and far too much gamer stuff. He writes technical documentation by day, fights injustice by night, and gives the rest of his time to his fiction, gaming, and his lovely lady (not necessarily in that order). Shadowbane is his fourth FORGOTTEN REALMS novel. He maintains an author's blog at eriksdb.livejournal.com, which is linked from his website, www.erikscottdebie.com.

    Looking for a story with deep characters? This is for you. Tired of Realms novels revolving around Realms Shaking Events? Give this a try! Comic book fans and lovers of vigilante justice? Buy it. Erik Scott de Bie is the best author to write for Wizards of the Coast sine R. A. Salvatore.
