REVIEWS

Praise for Shadow Chaser

Praise for Shadow Prowler:

“An exciting take on classical themes as a professional thief finds himself reluctantly cast into the role of a hero to save his homeland from destruction. The story is engrossing, the characters intriguing and dynamic; there are mysteries galore and the very real sense as we set out that far creepier things are waiting down the road. In short, a book I didn’t want to put down and want to see what comes next.”
—Chris Claremont, bestselling writer of the X-Men and Wolverine

Shadow Prowler is a fresh, exuberant take on territory that will be familiar to all fans of classic high fantasy. Alexey Pehov introduces a cast of charming, quirky, unsavory, even loathsome characters in a fast-paced, entertaining adventure.”
—Kevin J. Anderson, co-author of the bestselling Dune books
