From USA Today bestselling author David Dalglish

It's been five long years since the city learned to fear...

In book #2 of the Shadowdance series, the war between the thief guilds and the powerful allegiance known as the Trifect has slowly dwindled. Now only the mysterious Haern is left to wage his private battle against the guilds in the guise of the Watcher - a vicious killer who knows no limits. But when the son of Alyssa Gemcroft, one of the three leaders of the Trifect, is believed murdered, the slaughter begins anew. Mercenaries flood the streets with one goal in mind: find and kill the Watcher.

Peace or destruction; every war must have its end.

Fantasy author David Dalglish spins a tale of retribution and darkness, and an underworld reaching for ultimate power.

David Dalglish’s ‘The Dance of Blades’ – Shodowdance Series book 2 is a terrific adult rated book. I highly recommend it to my contemporaries, other teenage readers 16 and older. Other books in the series: ‘The Dance of Cloaks’ (2013) book 1, ‘A Dance of Mirrors’ (2013) book 3 and ‘A Dance of Shadows’ (2013) book 4. Doctor-at-Bass! Taylor A.
