The Underworld rules the city of Veldaren. Thieves, smugglers, assassins... they fear only one man.



In book #1 of the Shadowdance series, Thren Felhorn is the greatest assassin of his time. All the thieves' guilds of the city are under his unflinching control. If he has his way, death will soon spill out from the shadows and into the streets.



Aaron is Thren's son, trained to be heir to his father's criminal empire. He's cold, ruthless - everything an assassin should be. But when Aaron risks his life to protect a priest's daughter from his own guild, he glimpses a world beyond piston, daggers, and the iron rule of his father.


Assassin or protector; every choice has its consequences.

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

3.5 Review of "A Dance of Cloaks" (Shadowdance, #1) by David Dalglish
I will be reading the next book in this series—which is probably the best indication of how I felt about the read. (No, this book did not end with a cliffhanger). It's fairly usual for fantasy genre gone a bit dark with thieves, assassins, corrupt folk in high places, religions, magics and a whif...

2.0 A Dance of Cloaks
This wasn't for me. I think I'm not the target audience, which is a bummer because I was so excited in the beginning.There were too many characters without a redeeming quality among them. There were just a few, maybe 4 people that had some worthiness to them, but it wasn't enough for me to continue ...

3.5 A dance of Cloaks
Not quite as good as The Way of The Shadows (which is why i rated this 3.5 stars, instead of 4) but a pretty entertaining read in its own right.At te end David explains he got his inspiration for this series from The Night Angel series and the Game of Throne Series, and i can certainly see there inv...

2.5 I wish I would have liked this one more
It took me long enough to read this. Which should give you an indication why my rating is not that great. I need to point out, that I feel quite heartsore about it. I was really hoping I would love this. The synopsis sounds great! And I was sure that the only thing that could go wrong here was that ...

4.0 A Dance of Cloaks
Fantasy stories take place in wonderful, magical worlds full of wizards and thieves, heroes and villains. In the end, the hero always manages to overcome all odds and save the day. David Dalglish takes normal fantasy stories, strips them of everything pure and decent, stabs them in the heart repeate...
