"The series revolves around three Greatcoats: Falcio val Mond, the nominal leader of the order and the story's narrator; Falcio's childhood friend Kest Murrowson, a master swordsman; and Brasti Goodbow, an archer of unparalleled skill but with a troubled past. Together, they navigate the political intrigue of the kingdom of Tristia while attempting to fulfill the final orders of King Paelis, deposed and murdered by Tristia's dukes some time before the series begins.
Four months after fleeing his own people, Kellen has discovered he's an even worse outlaw than he was mage. It doesn't help that his only allies are a swaggering card player and a thieving squirrel cat.
Then he meets Seneira, a blindfolded girl who isn't blind, and whose secrets get them caught up in a conspiracy of magic, blackmail and murder. Now Kellen must find the mage responsible before the entire frontier falls victim to the mystical plague known as the shadowblack.
Perfect for fans of The Dark Tower, Firefly, Guardians of the Galaxy, Terry Pratchett, Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher.
