Book Description

A Storm is Brewing...

On the eve of the Festival of the Long Night, a raucous holiday which commemorates the onset of the Demon Scourge, a mysterious ship has entered Crown, captained by an enigmatic elf in the service of the dreaded Ice Skull League. On board is a mysterious and evil relic that could bring ruin and despair to the proud city and forbidden power to the inscrutable Grey God.

Beneath the waves, a stalwart alonn druid has begun a crusade to banish the relic, while in the city's slums; a cunning elven assassin has been hired to kill the captain in cold blood.

As the storm approaches, a celebrated dwarven gladiator is manipulated to kill for blood and the Grey God's glory as a colossal oltreggan barbarian has been set free from prison and placed on a path with destiny.

All the while, an etherean who serves as the Queen's Intelligencer frantically pulls together the pieces, trying to discover the identity of the half-demon who is behind it all. In a race against time, the unlikely heroes come together in clash that could mean the end for them all.

When the storm hits, will Crown survive?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Fantasy Jaunt 19 May 2008
By MAJ BZ1 - Published on
The "Skein of Shadows" is a fun Fantasy novel that makes good use of perspective in five separate short stories to lead the reader on a tense Fantasy ride. By using the perspective of five distinct characters in separate short stories we become enmeshed in the conspiracy to bring destruction on the city of Crown. From the taught short story of the Assassin hired to kill a blood enemy, to the story Dwarf that forlornly fights evil for the sport of others, to the quirky sea race pulled slowly into the maelstrom, to the slow witted barbarian who's primal instincts govern his decisions as much as the faceless puppet master who "guides" him, closing with the ethereal detective that ties the "strings" together in a clean package. One of the better Fantasy books I have read. I recommend it for the Fantasy reader who enjoys tales of magic and might mixed cleverly with a detective story that keeps the reader engrossed to see the final outcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skein of Shadows is a wonderful read 27 July 2008
By Benjamin Lee - Published on
Skein of Shadows is a wonderful, quick paced, action packed read that leaves the reader wanting more. The book is a collection of five stories, following five different characters to the same climatic end. Each story is written in the authors own individual style, but all of them remind the reader that something bigger is happening. I had the pleasure of meeting these writers and talking to them before actually reading the book. They have come together to not only create a great cast of characters, but provided an excellent adventure for anyone who enjoys the Scifi/Fantasy Genre.
