Annotation

To escape life as a guild rat in the back alleys of the Warrens, Azoth becomes an apprentice of the city's most accomplished assassin, Durzo Blint, but he may not have the killer instinct to survive the life he's chosen.

Summary

From the gutters of the Warrens to the opulent court at Khalidor, Brent Weeks's epic fantasy THE WAY OF SHADOWS unfolds on the page of this graphic novel adaptation as seen through the eyes of seasoned illustrator Andy MacDonald!

For the orphan Azoth, there are precious few avenues out of the life of a guild rat in the back alleys of the Warrens. There are no rewards without risks, and there are few greater risks than apprenticing yourself to the city's most accomplished assassin, Durzo Blint.

Reborn as Kylar Stern, the young man must learn to navigate the intrigues of politics and the intricacies of magic, but does he have both the killer instinct and the raw talent to survive the cutthroat life he's chosen?
