Synopsis:  A Highside girl. Beaten. Murdered. Her body found on a Lowside dock. A magistrate comes looking for answers. For justice.

Alys trades and sells secrets among the gangs and factions of Lowside. She is a daughter of the underworld. Bold. Cunning. Free. When an old lover asks for help, she agrees. For a price.

Together, they travel into the dark heart of the underworld in search of a killer.


The mystery continues as Echoes from the Ascended incorporates yet another thrilling adventure into the Aedaronean series. But unlike its sister series, A Reaper of Stone, Best Left in the Shadows takes a step away from the mystical, leading readers through the gripping subterfuge of a highborn murder in the low side of town. Here, the heroes may be a little tarnished but even in Lowside, there’s honor among thieves and their need for retribution must be satisfied. Another fast-paced page-turner from Gelineau & King, Best Left in the Shadows will leave audiences astounded!
