Publisher's Summary

One has conquered a city. The other covets an entire nation.
Haern is the King's Watcher, protector against thieves and nobles who would fill the night with blood. Yet hundreds of miles away, an assassin known as the Wraith has begun slaughtering those in power, leaving the symbol of the Watcher in mockery.
When Haern travels south to confront this copycat, he finds a city ruled by the corrupt, the greedy and the dangerous. Rioters fill the streets and the threat of war hangs over everything.
To forge peace, Haern must confront the deadly Wraith, a killer who would shape the kingdom's future with the blade of his sword. Man or God; what happens when the lines are blurred?
Fantasy author David Dalglish spins a tale of retribution and darkness, and an underworld reaching for ultimate power.

Critic Reviews

"Dalglish is well on his way to join the ranks of Peter V. Brett and Brent Weeks as influential authors in a new generation of fantasy ." ( Fantasy Faction)
"A gritty book with intriguing characters and has a plot which will keep you hooked till the end" ( Fantasy Book Critic on A Dance of Cloaks)
"A winning combination of A Game of Thrones, sword-and-sorcery RPGs, and vivid description... The point of view shifts continually, encompassing bit players and major characters from every angle of the struggle, and Dalglish handles his cast of thousands with aplomb... this is a fun read. Dalglish puts familiar pieces together with a freshness and pleasure that are contagious" ( Publishers Weekly)
"Dalglish concocts a heady cocktail of energy, breakneck pace and excitement that a reader could get drunk on" (Sam Sykes, author of Tomb of The undergates,)
