A modern classic of epic fantasy, New York Times bestseller The Way of Shadows is the first volume in the multi-million copy selling Night Angel Trilogy in which a young boy trains under the city’s most legendary and feared assassin, Durzo Blint.
For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art — and he is the city’s most accomplished artist.
For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he’s grown up in the slums, and learned to judge people quickly — and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.
But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins’ world of dangerous politics and strange magics — and cultivate a flair for death.
