Book Description

A city of dark and deadly secrets, a prince who must be protected, a young man who can barely use a sword. Berren's thrilling new adventure from the author of THE ADAMANTINE PALACE.



Berren is not enjoying himself. Trapped in a temple, forced to learn how to read, how to write and how to recall the histories of the Saints, all he wants is to be given a sword. As a thief-taker's apprentice he imagined a world of daring night-time chases, glorious victories and a life of excitement. His dreams aren't quite coming true.



So when a prince - the first and last prince he'll ever see - hires the thief-taker as a bodyguard, Berren is thrilled. When he hears that a troupe of Dragon Monks - exotic warriors and the best swordsmen in the world - are visiting, he sees an opportunity to learn how to fight. When one of the Monks turns out to be a girl of the same age, his future suddenly seems a lot brighter.



But when a shadowy figure launches an attack on the life of Prince Sharda, Berren finds himself plunged into a world of danger, intrigue and terror. He may discover that being trained with a sword isn't enough - sometimes, you have to know who to fight.



Sequel to the best-selling THE THIEF-TAKER'S APPRENTICE, THE WARLOCK'S SHADOW drags the reader back in to the nocturnal and dangerous world of Berren, orphan and reluctant hero. Perfect for readers of Trudi Canavan and Robin Hobb.

    Review

    Ok so this isn't the memory of flames series. But i don't think it ever pretends to be. This is Young Adult Fiction, a genre that is riddled with cliched rubbish. Deas doesn't do that he doesn't talk down to these young readers and as such provides a series that is a spawning ground for imagination and draws new readers into one of the finest genres around. He provides great characters great locations a great world for you the readers to go to and forget reality. This is full on fantasy, just mildly toned down for the YA market and yet still providing a tale that me a 40 year old can enjoy as well.
    Its fantastic work and recommended
