Young Fitz is the bastard son of the noble Prince Chivalry, raised in the shadow of the royal court by his father's gruff stableman. He is treated like an outcast by all the royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has him sectetly tutored in the arts of the assassin. For in Fitz's blood runs the magic Skill--and the darker knowledge of a child raised with the stable hounds and rejected by his family. As barbarous raiders ravage the coasts, Fitz is growing to manhood. Soon he will face his first dangerous, soul-shattering mission. And though some regard him as a threat to the throne, he may just be the key to the survival of the kingdom.

This Author Renders me Speechless


This novel cannot be put down. The author creates compelling characters. The concepts can more be appreciated by adult readers.



Great read, good fantasy for adults


really enjoyed this, I mean it is fantasy and I am normally not a fan but I found the characters compelling and the story not too far fetched. I wish there was more action though. However I am hooked enough to want the second in the trilogy. Well done to the author your mind is am amazing thing.

It's a cheap copy of the book, but if you're buying it for the story, then it really doesn't matter
