Melanie Rawn’s Glass Thorns series is set in a created fantasy world in which the intimacy of live theater and the thrill of brilliant performances are shaped by skilled practitioners of magic into a complete sensory and emotional immersion. The magic-wielding artists who do this are the rock-stars of this world—and Cade wants nothing more than to be one of them.
Cayden Silversun is part Elven, part Fae, part human Wizard—and all rebel. His aristocratic mother would have him follow his father to the Royal Court, to make a high-society living off the scraps of kings. But Cade lives and breathes for the theater, and he’s good: very, very good. Cade, Rafe, Jeska and their mad elfin glisker Mieka will enter the highest reaches of society and power, or die trying.
