Only a child, already a deadly assassin...The Chronicles of Shiverdark is five books in one. The first book is Of Kings and Dockrats. It is the story of a young and canny thief and blackmail collector called J'rael. Son of the evil Ebu Natral, the yellow-eyed underworld king whose minions terrorize the citizens of Wescove, J'rael is taken under the wings of his half-sister, the assassin Chu'Lin, and trained to become the most feared and deadly killer in the land, after only Chu'Lin herself. But for J'rael, the future holds more than just the uncertain prospect of life as a paid killer. Unexpected adventures and encounters with the most horrifying creatures (as well as the most seductive and beautiful) await him on his journey to manhood...and more. This and the next four books will take you on a journey of magic and adventure through the world of Midgarthe, in the Age of Mystery.

Having read Erik Jensen's work under his own name and his pen name Dane Roarke I am most impressed with his prose. His word choice usually a pleasant surprise, using an advanced but not pretentious vocabulary in a way that I find unusual but apt. His characters are complex, although sometimes I find it hard to empathize with characters who live such gritty lives and seem to lack any real principles. This is definitely an R-rated book, but the sex scenes further the plot and character development and are not just gratuitous. I shared this with a friend of mine who is less concerned than I am about literary elements and he likes this book for its action and adventure.
