The Shadow-Man (Alterra Histories, Book 3) by C. S. Marks

By C. S. Marks

The boy knew it was once unsuitable to kill. He believed in human kindness--until he observed unbelievable acts of savagery spurred by means of the fear of a determined mob.

When every little thing he knew failed him,
When all that he depended on betrayed him,
He selected to include the shadow.

Casting apart associates, family members, and honor, he walks the assassins’ road--away from the light--into deceit and denial.

Sometimes killing is justified...

A shadow-man doesn't ask "why."

Sample text

It was raining the night they came. " She ran trembling fingers over the silver hilt of the knife at her belt. " Darken Rahl had wanted Jennsen dead because she had been born ungifted. Any ruler of that bloodline killed offspring such as she. Richard and Kahlan believed that a person's life was their own to live, and that birth did not qualify that right. Jennsen's haunted eyes turned up to Richard. " With one arm, Richard pulled Jennsen into a tender embrace. They all understood such terrible loss.

Women like her—Confessors—dared not dream of love. Because of Richard, she had dared and had gained it. Kahlan shuddered to think of the terrible times she had feared he was dead, or worse. There had been so many times she had ached to be with him, to simply feel his warm touch, or to even be granted the mercy of knowing he was safe. Jennsen glanced at Richard and Kahlan to see that neither took Cara's admonition as anything but fond heckling. Kahlan supposed that to a stranger, especially one from the land of D'Hara, as was Jennsen, Cara's gibes at Richard would defy reason; guards did not bait their masters, especially when their master was the Lord Rahl, the master of D'Hara.

She knew that he needed to be left alone about it. Pestering him for answers before he had them only served to distract him from what he needed to do. Watching Richard's back as he walked away, Jennsen finally forced a smile of agreement. Then, as if struck with another thought, her eyes widened. " Jennsen nodded. "I'll help. " For the time being, Kahlan kept her worries to herself as she circled an arm around the young woman's shoulders in an appreciative embrace and walked her back toward the wagon.
