A novel by

This 23,000 word NOVELLA is book number two in the INK MAGE SideQuest trilogy.

Templeton Kane is a minor lord from a failed house, a rogue, an amateur troubadour, and an opportunist. Lill is a muscular barbarian from the Glacial Wastes. She's also an Ink Mage. After their adventures in The Murder Blossom, Templeton and Lill now find themselves on the run from the mysterious Shadow Sorceress. Why? Because Lill has stolen the secrets of a special Shadow Tattoo ... except it's not quite a tattoo but some new magic. So Lill and Templeton flee to Klaar in search of a wizard who can help decipher this new magic. While in Klaar, Templeton meets the daughter of the duke, a young lady with ambitions of her own. But the Shadow Sorceress ... she's out there.

Occasional strong language, brief adult situations, and gritty sword-stabbing action. The Shadow Sorceress is a 23,000 word NOVELLA.

A word about SideQuests: Ink Mage SideQuests are meant to be shorter works set in the world of Ink Mage. Think of them as "in between meal snacks" while waiting for the books in the main series. Characters and situations might (or might not) appear in the main novels.
