New Stories by Raymond E. Feist, Dennis L. McKiernan, and others
Empires rise and fall, but Sanctuary lives on!
Sanctuary, a lawless city governed by evil forces, powerful magic, and political intrigue.
The Age of the Rankin reign of Kadakithis, the occupation of the Beysib, and indeed the erstwhile Renaissance are all in the past. It is years later and the legendary figures of Jubal, Tempus, Shadowspawn, and the Stormchildren are now just memories, myth, and rumor.
But the city and its people live on. A new pantheon of personalities have moved in and are making their mark on this dark and dangerous city.
Meet these denizens of the city where just surviving is a full-time occupation.
Meet Halott the Necromancer, Latilla—daughter of the legendary artist Lalo the Limmer, Dysan the short and scrappy thief, Jake the rat, and a host of others.
Return to Sanctuary and let the games begin!
"Brilliantly conceived." - C. J.Cherryh
"Thieves' World was a signal event in fantasy history for two reasons: The first was turning a lot of talented writers loose in a neutral world. The second was the creation of books that were rightfully hailed by fans and other professionals alike for their unique approach to the storyteller's craft and its rich legacy of first-rate story."-Raymond E. Feist
This new volume includes new stories by Raymond E. Feist, Dennis L. McKiernan, Mickey Zucker Reichert, Diana Paxson, Lynn Abbey and others.
Sanctuary: a lawless city governed by evil forces, powerful magic, and political intrigue, where survival is an unexpected bonus. The Age of the Rankan reign of Kadakithis, the occupation of the Beysib, and even the erstwhile Renaissance are all in the past. It is years later and the heroes of the past-Jubal, Tempus, Shadowspawn, and the Stormchildren-are memories, myth, and rumor. Now outsiders rule with an iron hand and a bloody dagger. Molin Torchholder, the secret guardian of the city, is dead, his mantle and staff secretly passed to another. But Sanctuary and its inhabitants carry on. The city has reached a turning point . . . and only the fates know where it will lead.
