Praise for Shadow Prowler
"Toothy, gritty, and relentless. Alexey Pehov sneaks up on you and fascinates with the wry voice of a young Moorcock. Clear space on your shelf--you'll want the whole series."
--E.E. Knight, author of the Vampire Earth series
“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.”
--Chris Claremont, bestselling writer for the X-Men and Wolverine comic book series
“Those who like fantasy novels offering ogres, elves, undead creatures, wizards, and the like joined in an epic quest will be delighted . . . pitched battles are described so well that they seem to unfold before one’s eyes. A first book in a series that piques interest for the others.”
“Bestselling Russian author Pehov translates easily in his English fantasy debut…. protagonist Shadow Harold proves modest and witty enough a narrator to carry the series.”
“[Shadow Harald is] almost like some character out of The Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser saga by Fritz Leiber. He’s an unlikely sort of hero for a series, which added to my growing interest in The Shadow Prowler. . . . Shadow Prowler is a very good beginning to Alexey Pehov’s trilogy.”
“A book that most fantasy readers will want to read and explore. . . . In short, if you like reading fantasy, you’ll love reading this book.”
--Graeme’s Fantasy Book Reviews
"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 loathesome characters in a fast-paced, entertaining adventure."
--Kevin J. Anderson, co-author of the bestselling Dune novels
