Book Description

The Shadow at the Gate by Christopher Bunn

The Indie Book of the Day for 21st of October, 2012!

Genre: Fantasy, Action & Adventure

The Shadows are Searching… The assassin Ronan hunts through the city of Hearne, desperate to find the young thief Jute. But there are greater powers at work, and both Ronan and Jute are unwitting pawns in an ancient struggle of deadly importance.

Captured and imprisoned in the catacombs beneath the city of Hearne, Jute frantically attempts to break out of his dungeon before it’s too late. On the run, tracked by shadows and shadowhounds, Jute and his friends flee the city for the wilderness of the north.

All the while, the wind is coming alive inside of him. But, before Jute can figure out how to unleash its power, he needs to learn how to fly. Even more important, he must learn who his enemy is and what it is plotting in the darkness.

  The epic fantasy saga that began with The Hawk and His Boy, and continued with The Shadow at the Gate, concludes with The Wicked Day.

Read Sample

Christopher Bunn (1969-still alive) was born in California to parents of extra-terrestrial origin. After working a long and not-so-illustrious career that did not include a stint as a mule skinner, six months lost at sea on a life raft provisioned only with a crate of bananas, two years as a prize fighter, several shameful terms in Congress, nor a brief time spent in the circus as a lion tamer, he began writing novels in order to chronicle his life and the lives of other people who did not exist. In 2006, he apparently came close to winning the prestigious Shumlo Flemsley Prize for Intergalactic Literary Excellence. As the prize, in addition to a lot of cash, also includes an immediate death sentence from the supreme judiciary of the planet Flurg, Betelgeuse System, he was grateful to have fallen short. Bunn is supposedly considering writing a comic history about the Universe titled Things That Can Be Unplugged & Other Things.
