The Rynax brothers had gone legit after Asti Rynax's service in Druth Intelligence had shattered his nerves, and marriage and fatherhood convinced Verci Rynax to leave his life of thievery. They settled back in their old neighborhood in West Maradaine and bought themselves a shop, eager for a simple, honest life. Then the Holver Alley Fire incinerated their plans. With no home, no shop, and no honest income - and saddled with a looming debt - they fall back on their old skills and old friends. With a crew of other fire victims, Asti and Verci plan a simple carriage heist, but the job spirals out of control as they learn that the fire was no accident. Lives in Holver Alley were destroyed out of a sadistic scheme to buy the land. Smoldering for revenge, burdened with Asti's crumbling sanity, the brothers and their crew of amateurs and washouts swear to take down those responsible for the fire, no matter the cost.

Praise for the Maradaine universe: Maresca's debut is <b>smart, fast, and engaging fantasy crime</b> in the mold of Brent Weeks and Harry Harrison. Just perfect. --Kat Richardson, national bestselling author of <i>Revenant</i> Veranix is Batman, if Batman were a teenager and magically talented.... <b>Action, adventure, and magic in a school setting</b> will appeal to those who love <i>Harry Potter</i> and Patrick Rothfuss' <i>The Name of the Wind</i>. &#8213;<i>Library Journal </i>(starred) A well-conceived and well-written melange of popular fantasy sub-genres: there's a university with a magic department, there is some vigilante derring-do and thievery.... If you're looking for an <b>action-and-adventure-filled new fantasy series</b>, then <i>The Thorn of Dentonhill</i> will suit very well. --Civilian Reader <i>The Thorn of Dentonhill</i> is a <b>light-hearted, fun read</b>, and Maresca has introduced a hero with plenty of room to grow, a couple of villains who will provide plenty of conflict in upcoming books. And, most importantly, he's created a character that I care enough about to continue reading. --Relentless Reading Take the <b>caped avenger of Batman, the teenage-superhero angst of Spiderman</b>, the street-gang bravado of <i>West Side Story</i>, and toss in the magic of <i>Harry Potter</i>, and what have you got? Marshall Ryan Maresca's <i>The Thorn of Dentonhill</i>. --Kings River Life Magazine Maresca brings the whole package, complete and well-constructed. If you're looking for something fun and adventurous for your next fantasy read, look no further than <i>The Thorn of Dentonhill</i>, <b>an incredible start to a new series</b>, from an author who is clearly on his way to great things. --Bibliosanctum <i>The Thorn of Dentonhill</i> was <b>a fast-paced read with action from start to finish</b>. I loved every minute of it. --Short and Sweet Reviews <b>Definitely</b> <b>a fun read</b>, and one classic fantasy fans will likely enjoy. --Bibliotropic So much of it is <b>terribly exciting and fun</b>.... What I really liked about the ending was how it set up relationships and possibilities for the next book (which I definitely plan on reading). --Tenacious Reader
