About Diavosh Bassiti
Unlike the prevailing stereotype, he has no cats.
Delve into the rich fantasy adventure set in a charged world of thieves and assassins, from the author of The Jewel of Nineveh.
Divided by generations of hatred, an ancient city faces a barbarian invasion that will destroy them all. A feral orphan forced to kill and steal just to survive, manipulated by those he trusts. And at the center of everything, a master thief spins a web of treachery and deception as he is slowly consumed by madness.
Sometimes the best you can hope for is a quick death.
