Once a fabled Blade of Namara, Aral Kingslayer fought for justice and his goddess alongside his familiar, a living shadow called Triss. Now with their goddess murdered and her temple destroyed, they are among the last of their kind. Surviving on the fringes of society, Aral becomes a drunken, broken, and wanted man, working whatever shadowy deal comes his way. Until a mysterious woman hires him to deliver a secret message - one that can either redeem him or doom him.

"Inventive, irreverent and fast-paced, strong on both action and humor." ---Green Man Review
This is a great story with excellent narration. It has a great fast pace and you really feel the characters start to come to life, sadly though the rest of this series isn't available yet on audible. But this story does have a good enough ending to listen to as a stand alone book.
This book reads/listens a lot like Brent Weeks The Way Of Shadows series of the same theme. I get the feeling this author was referencing The Way Of Shadows as he wrote. It is pretty good, but not original.
I will be following the series.
