One by one, the guilds of New Jerusalem fall to Shadrak the Unseen and his accomplice, the poisoner Albert. But as the battle for supremacy comes to a head, Shadrak is given a new order by the mysterious Archon: kill his closest living friend, the Nameless Dwarf.

The philosopher Aristodeus persuades the Archon to stay his hand, proposing instead three quests that will free Nameless from the curse of the black axe that led him to slaughter his own people.

But the plan has perils of its own: a visit to the fire giant’s lair at the heart of a volcano; a daring raid on the Liche Lord’s castle in darkest Verusia; and a confrontation with the son of the Demiurgos in the depths of the Abyss.

Even with the incomparable partnership of Shadrak and Nameless, the quests seem doomed to failure, and so Aristodeus tries once more to entice Deacon Shader back to the fight.

But Shader is a changed man, more given to drink than the sword, and if he should discover the secret Rhiannon and Aristodeus have kept from him these past four years, the quests are sure to come to a crashing halt before they even get off the ground.

Friendship, scheming, and the worst horrors imaginable combine to test the companions to the limits, and despair dark enough to corrode even the most unwavering faith awaits those not destined to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And the plot thickens...yet again. This is about the paperback edition. First off, this review is biased. I’ve read all his books that I could get my hands on and have liked them all. So when I received Shader 4 I was expecting another good adventure. Mr. Prior didn’t disappoint at all. Mr. Prior blesses us with another great read that will keep you on the edge off your seat wondering what the Hell our unlikely hero will do. Just when you think that Mr. Prior will run out of twists for our favorite characters and turns in the plot would be on wrong in the extreme. Just when you think you have things figured out a twist is thrown in from somewhere you didn't think of, but when you look back you shake your head thinking I should have seen that. In brief, this book stays true to the previous ones and expands on it in unexpected ways that are thoroughly enjoyable. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. It’s worth it.
