this is what Grafin Drachen posted when i ask if i should by the book.

A quick overveiw would be best strait from the back of the book - The first volume in a noirish, gritty urban fantasy for adults from the bestselling Children’s author. Quick-witted and cocksure, young upstart Capac Raimi arrives in the City determined to make his mark. As he learns the tricks of his new trade from his Uncle Theo—extortion, racketeering, threatening behaviour—he’s soon well on his way to becoming a promising new gangster. Then he crosses paths with The Cardinal, and his life changes forever. The Cardinal is the City and the City is The Cardinal. They are joined at the soul. Nothing moves on the streets, or below them, without the Cardinal’s knowledge. His rule is absolute. As Capac begins to discover more about the extent of the Cardinal’s influence on his own life he is faced with hard choices. And as his ambition soars ever higher he will learn all there is to know about loss, and the true cost of ultimate power!

Some Shanfan I am.
I never knew of this trilogy.
But either way I cannot wait to read it none the less.
Looks really good. Though of course, it’s from Shan so.

All three books have been out in the US for a while now. I followed it adamantly because all three are amazing! Definitely recommend them but beware because they ARE for written for adults

Seeing as Darren’s books are always first sold in the UK and Ireland, I am guessing they’re all out in the UK.
