After the loss of friends and comrades, after betrayals and battles, master thief Shadow Harold finally enters Hrad Spein. Hidden deep within the bowels of the dreaded underground fortress is the object of Harold's quest: the Rainbow Horn, the magical object that would be the salvation of Siala. Many dangerous obstacles lie within, including magical traps, long-dead armies of elves and orcs, and fiendish ghouls -and there are sure to be even more deadly hurdles that are yet unknown. Shadow Harold must now carry out the most daring theft of his life, and he must do it alone.

In Shadow Blizzard, the third book by international bestselling fantasy author Alexey Pehov, already the armies of orcs and the Nameless One have begun their assault on the Northern Lands, and the days of despair and devastation have commenced. Even if Harold can successfully steal the Horn, will he be in time to save his world from destruction?

Praise for Shadow Blizzard

“The second of the Chronicles of Siala is as mesmerizing as Shadow Prowler...Former friends become the enemy, and there are plenty of undead and magic to contend with, all described in beautiful detail. Again, Pehov's mastery pulls the reader into the story, creating vibrant interpersonal encounters in a believable world.” —Booklist on Shadow Chaser

“Employing all the standard trappings of the genre, this sequel to Shadow Prowler enjoys a freshness of vision that elevates it beyond standard fantasy fare.” —Library Journal on Shadow Chaser

“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 on Shadow Prowler

“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.” —Booklist on Shadow Prowler

“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.” —Publishers Weekly on Shadow Prowler

“[Shadow Harold is] almost like some character out of The Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser by Fritz Leiber. He's an unlikely sort of hero for a series... Shadow Prowler is a very good beginning to Alexey Pehov's trilogy.” —BSC Reviews on Shadow Prowler

“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 that I didn't want to put down.” —Chris Claremont, bestselling writer of the X-Men and Wolverine, on Shadow Prowler

“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 on Shadow Prowler
