Looking Forward to... (4)

This is becoming a regular meme for me to do lately.  There are so many amazing new books coming to the shelves at all times and I have started this year really getting into the new reads.  Of course the books on the shelves already are on my lists as well, and I am picking them up too.

This week is a new book by Jon Sprunk, Shadow's Son:

This is a Fantasy read and from what Goodreads has listed, is to be released June 22, 2010.  I am always looking for new writer and stories, and this one sounds to fall in that category for me.

Here is the synopsis from Jon's Site:
In the holy city of Othir, treachery and corruption lurk at the end of every street, just the place for a freelance assassin with no loyalties and few scruples.

Caim makes his living on the edge of a blade, but when a routine job goes south, he is thrust into the middle of an insidious plot. Pitted against crooked lawmen, rival killers, and darkest sorcery, his only allies are the socialite daughter of his last target and a guardian spirit no one else can see. But in this fight for his life, Caim only trusts his knives and his insticts, but they won't be enough when his quest for justice leads him from Othir's hazardous back alleys to its shining corridors of power. To unmask a conspiracy at the heart of the empire, he must claim his birthright as the Shadow's Son...
