Bloodline Rising, Paperback


The Ghost is the fastest, most cunning young criminal in Constantinople.

Skilled at lying and deceit, he has the power to twist the minds of men, bending them to his will.

He is both invisible and invincible. Or at least he thinks so - till the day his father returns from the desert.

A ruthless barbarian assassin, Essa is not pleased to discover that his wild son Cai has become the city's most notorious thief.

But sinister forces are moving against Cai and he finds himself captive on a trading ship.

The Ghost no longer, he is now a slave. But luck has not deserted him completely - the ship is bound for Britain, the home his barbarian parents fled, long ago.

When he becomes a slave to Wulfhere, prince of Mercia, Cai soon discovers that his Anglish masters know more about his family than he does - what secrets have his mother and father been keeping from him?

As Cai sharpens his skills of subterfuge and persuasion, war threatens, and he must choose: will he use his phenomenal talents for good, or evil?
