Two men who hate each other. One impossible mission. A legend in the making.

Hadrian Blackwater, a warrior with nothing to fight for, is paired with Royce Melborn, a thieving assassin with nothing to lose. Hired by an old wizard, they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown Tower is the impregnable remains of the grandest fortress ever built and home to the realm's most prized possessions. But it isn't gold or jewels that the wizard is after, and if he can just keep them from killing each other, they just might succeed.

  • A tasty appetizer, but not a main course

    By Supreme Overkill
    The Revelations trilogy (that was published before this prequel) is the best trilogy I have ever read. Each story stood on its own yet interlocked in a larger arc that was fun, fascinating and beautiful. The Crown Tower is like visiting long lost friends, but some of the old magic is missing. I enjoyed it, but it didn't blow me away. I still love the characters and will read the next installment, but I'd rather see the author weave another tale like he did before. I figure it will take a while to do all that weaving. . . I'll gladly wait for the magic.
  • Amazing book!

    Can't get enough of his books and this series. I'm going to get the audio ones just to listen. I've read them a few times already.
