Publisher's Summary

The Underworld rules the city of Veldaren. Thieves, smugglers, assassins... they fear only one man.
Thren Felhorn is the greatest assassin of his time. All the thieves' guilds of the city are under his unflinching control. If he has his way, death will soon spill out from the shadows and into the streets.
Aaron is Thren's son, trained to be heir to his father's criminal empire. He's cold, ruthless - everything an assassin should be. But when Aaron risks his life to protect a priest's daughter from his own guild, he glimpses a world beyond piston, daggers, and the iron rule of his father.
Assassin or protector; every choice has its consequences.
Fantasy author David Dalglish spins a tale of retribution and darkness, and an underworld reaching for ultimate power.

Tough slurring narration

What did you like best about this story?

The story line is good, just have to get past the narration which is can drone on.

Meant for teenagers

Put me to sleep. Narrator tried too hard with the voices and his delivery was flat. The story was too predictable and slow to develop. I guess the author was going for epic, but for me it just dragged and was filled with too many depressing moments and one dimensional characters. I guess if you were looking for a Game of Thrones type epic that's more appropriate for young adults, this might be good, but I'm gonna to pass on reading anymore of this series.
