But before they can even reach their goal, they must overcome all manner of obstacles, fight many battles…and evade the frightful enemies on their trail.

Praise for Shadow Chaser

“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 on Shadow Prowler

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 on Shadow Prowler
