“Den of Thieves rollicks….This is a book I would be happy to have written.”
Remember this name: David Chandler. With Den of Thieves, the first book in his astounding fantasy series, The Ancient Blades Trilogy, Chandler immediately establishes himself as a major player in the world of action-rich epic fantasy—right up there alongside George R. R. Martin, R. A. Salvatore, and Raymond E. Feist. An enthralling and wonderfully gritty tale of cutpurses, knights and demons, witches, betrayals, and darkest intrigue—in the popular vein of the bestselling works of Brent Weeks, Joe Abercrombie, and Scott Lynch—Den of Thieves introducers readers to Malden, an amiable young criminal whose one grave mistake bonds him to the lord of the underworld and sets him on an impossible quest that will most likely lead the hapless thief to his doom.
