It is a dangerous time to be a freelance thief in Thedra, the Obsidian City. Corin Quick-fingers challenges the rule of the Lord of Law, powerful master of the Courts of Law, Thedra’s guild of thieves. Stealing should be fun, after all, not just another boring trade with extortionate taxes and killjoy rules. Soon, however, the young thief will find himself drawn into events both fateful and fantastic. The time of the Cusp nears, when even the immortals might fall and men become as gods. And deep within the capital of the kingdom of corruption an ancient evil grows. Bloodspate is the first volume in the Song of Agmar Tales.
