A good thief barters in goods. A great one deals in shadows. A Shadow all of Light is a stylish, elegant, episodic fantasy novel by World Fantasy Award-winning author and former poet laureate Fred Chappell. This stylish, episodic fantasy novel is for fans of epic fantasies and heists. The tale follows the exploits of Falco, a young man from the country, who arrives in the port city of Tardocco with the ambition of becoming an apprentice to a master shadow thief. Maestro Astolfo, whose mysterious powers of observation would rival those of Sherlock Holmes, sees Falco's potential and puts him through a grueling series of physical lessons and intellectual tests. Falco's adventures coalesce into one overarching story of con men, monsters, ingenious detection, pirates, and the King of Cats. A wry humor leavens this fantastical concoction, and the style is as rich and textured as one would hope for from Chappell, a distinguished poet as well as a World Fantasy Award-winning author.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Fred ChappellPublisher: Tor BooksPublished: 07/11/2017ISBN: 9780765379139Pages: 384Weight: 0.90lbsSize: 9.10h x 5.90w x 1.10d
