Publisher's Summary

An army is gathering; thousands of giants, ogres, and other creatures are joining forces from all across the Desolate Lands, united, for the first time in history, under one, black banner. By the spring, or perhaps sooner, the Nameless One and his forces will be at the walls of the great city of Avendoom.
Unless Shadow Harold, master thief, can find some way to stop them.
Epic fantasy at its best, Shadow Prowler is the first in a trilogy that follows Shadow Harold, the legendary thief of Siala, on his quest for a magic Horn that will restore peace to the Kingdom of Siala. Harold will be accompanied on his quest by an elfin princess, Miralissa, her elfin escort and ten Wild Hearts, the most experienced and dangerous fighters in their world...and by the king's court jester (who may be more than he seems...or less).

New twist on the old "quest" genre.

Where to begin? First let me say that I was skeptical when I began this series. I have not been a huge fan of fantasy until lately when I began to like the “gritty” fantasy (Abercrombie or GRR Martin types of genre). I was not quite sure how I would like this series, but it has been amazing. Another concern I have had is that having seen and read Russian literature and performing arts before, I do not know what to expect from this novel. Anyone who has ever seen more than one Russian film may understand what I'm talking about. The storytelling in such films and books at times can be patchy, unclear, unorganized, and have weak conclusions. However this book did not have any traits and was executed flawlessly. Like other reviewers, this was an impulse buy, and I did get lucky. The past few books I have tried to listen to have been getting good reviews, but I just cannot get into them. This one however was well worth the risk and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to fill in some time while they wait for the next GRR Martin or Abercrombie book. Is this book as vast and gritty as those? Not really, but it is still entertaining and really isn’t that what it’s all about?

riveting spellbinding splendid


What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Prowler?

Shadow Harold's meeting with the king


What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

His excellent (and consistent) voices for the characters, whether a human, gnome, elf or dwarf. His reading really brought the story to life and greatly added to my imagination of the characters.
