Twilight of Kerberos: Shadowmage, by Matthew Sprange, is the first in a new fantasy series from Abaddon Books.
As a child, Lucius Kane’s parents were murdered by soldiers. Now, he is living on the streets and decides to join a thief guild. Lucius is a gifted thief, with extraordinary magical abilities. When a rival guild threatens his own, Lucius is also approached by the mysterious Shadowmage. Finding himself torn between loyalties, Lucius must make difficult decisions and face incredible foes.
Sprange has written a unique and thrilling fantasy. Even though Lucius Kane is a thief, his loyalties run deep. When faced with deception within and without his guild, Lucius remains true to himself. Filled with other exciting characters, the story remains fast-paced. Magic-infused fight scenes and monstrous creatures make this a fantasy to remember. With plenty of action, adventure, and intrigue, this series is off to a promising start. I highly recommend this for any genre fan!
