Empires rise and fall but the city of Sanctuary trudges on. The Age of the Rankan reign of Kadakithis, the occupation of the Beysib, and indeed the erstwhile Renaissance are all in the past. But the memories of the glory, savagery, and intrigue still live on. It is years later and the heroes of the past, Jubal, Tempus, Shadowspawn, and the Storm children, are consigned to the ranks of fallible memory, myth, and rumor.A lone survivor of the past, Molin Torchholder, is preparing to die in hiding, the victim of an assassination attempt by enemies long thought to be dead. But before he dies, he must arrange for a successor to guard the city's secrets. Cauvin, a refugee from one of the city's bloodiest eras, and a boy named Bec are enlisted to do his bidding and in doing so uncover the secrets of the past, present, and even the future of the legendary Thieves' World. Part tale of magical/political intrigue, part sword and sorcery, part Micheneresque fantasy epic of a city's history, """"Sanctuary"""" is the book that Thieves' World fans have been waiting for for over a decade, part Coda to the past, part launching port for the future. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
