Overview

Doljinaar. Kingdom of might and stone. One name is whispered upon the lips of every man, woman and child old enough to know fear. An assassin lives among them. A foreigner born of a far off dark land and yet lies as close as their shadows. An assassin that goes by the name of Shade… It has been many long years since Shade left the black forests of his people, the Dark Elves, where he was trained among the ranks of the Unseen. He has grown rich and powerful in the world of men, feeding off mankind’s compulsion for spilling its own blood. His name has become like a cold wind slipping in through the night, but even he tires of his own legend and yearns for a challenge… And so when Shade was offered a job that could mean his own downfall, he did not hesitate to accept. He would strike at the crimelord of the Kurn underground. In one bold stroke he would make himself an enemy of his own dark underworld. Has he finally found a worthy enemy or will this contract be his last? LIMITED ILLUSTRATED EDITION!

Solid debut novel! Very deep world here and LOTS of action. Some of the best fantasy names I've ever heard and the artwork was cool too. Very vivid book that pulls you into each scene. I think I'll have to get it four stars though since the world-building could have been trimmed down a bit. Very worthwhile read if you get through the occasional detail-rich chapter. Of course, Tolkien had the same problem. I remember him talking about a hill forever. Looking forward to the next book.

I'm enjoying the series so far. In the first book we meet Shade, a dark elf assassin, the top assassin of his day. I enjoyed the story and the new characters and the world that was built. I have started the second book and I'm enjoying it too. The books are only 200 plus pages, but there's a good story packed in there.

Waiting Game is a fun and engaging novel that throws the reader into an adventure that they will willingly accept. Shade is a likeable lead, that sometimes makes you wonder why you like him. His character is honest, yet ruthless. The book is a quick read, because you will want to know what Shade's next move is, and what plans his enemies concoct to thwart him. Truly an imagination thrill ride. Looking forward to book 2.
