A Master of Shadows! Lucius Kane was forced to flee Turnitia when the Vos Empire destroyed his home and his family.
Now, many years later, he returns to the city that once held him safe.
Here he finds a new trade and joins up with the Hands, a thieves guild run with precision and economy by a master of his craft.
But Lucius is so much more than a mere thief. He is a Shadowmage! These practitioners of magic and subterfuge are master infiltrators, spies, scouts...and assassins.
Now Lucius finds his loyalty torn between the Hands and his mentor in the secret society of Shadowmages. And when a war erupts between the thieves guilds that threatens to wash the streets of Turnitia with blood, Lucius must decide where his loyalties lie while mastering his burgeoning powers!
