Glass Thorns

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&mdashand Cade wants nothing more than to be one of them.

Cayden Silversun is part Elven, part Fae, part human Wizard&mdashand 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.
