“In the holy city of Othir, treachery and corruption lurk at the end of every street, just the place for a freelance assassin with no loyalties and few scruples. Caim makes his living on the edge of a blade, but when a routine job goes south, he is thrust into the middle of an insidious plot. Pitted against crooked lawmen, rival killers, and sorcery from the Other Side, his only allies are Josephine, the socialite daughter of his last victim, and Kit, a guardian spirit no one else can see. But in this fight for his life, Caim only trusts his knives and his instincts, but they won’t be enough when his quest for justice leads him from Othir’s hazardous back alleys to its shining corridors of power. To unmask a conspiracy at the heart of the empire, he must claim his birthright as the Shadow’s Son…” With an approximate run time of 7 hours, Jon Sprunk’s Shadow’s Son is the title that is finally going to get me to check out GraphicAudio and its “movie in your mind” full sound productions. I have been hesitant so far, because I’m just not sure about the sound effects, but this is a book I have been wanting to check out for a while, since it was originally published in print by Pyr in June 2010. So: trying something new!
