A land of death and shadow where only the strongest survive. Yet that is where Caim must go to follow the mystery at the heart of his life. Armed only with his knives and his companions, he plunges into a world of eternal night where the sun is never seen and every hand is turned against him. Caim has buried his father’s sword and found some measure of peace, but deep in the north an unfathomable power lies waiting. To succeed on this mission, Caim will have to do more than just survive. He must face the Shadow’s Master. With this novel, Jon Sprunk brings his action-packed trilogy to an epic conclusion.

Praise for Shadow’s Son and Shadow’s Lure
"Fans of Brent Weeks and Brandon Sanderson will certainly find plenty to like here."
-The Mad Hatter’s Bookshelf & Book Review
"The intrigue, action scenes, and ever-more-revealing character insights are masterfully woven together in a book the reader won’t want to put down. . . . Overall, a first-rate sword-and-sorcery tale, with intriguing characters, that moves at a fast pace."
"This book IS action. . . . The pacing, action, and characters are all well written, and really that is what the focus is on for this novel. . . . We’ll read [Sprunk’s] stuff readily, every time. So should you."
-Elitist Book Reviews
"When Sprunk gets going, he writes with an energy that has to be experienced to be believed. . . . A thoroughly entertaining read that had me wondering if perhaps all assassin stories aren’t the same after all."
