Synopsis of Thieves World: Turning Points

New Stories by Raymond E. Feist, Dennis L. McKiernan, and others

Empires rise and fall, but Sanctuary lives on!

Sanctuary, a lawless city governed by evil forces, powerful magic, and political intrigue.

The Age of the Rankin reign of Kadakithis, the occupation of the Beysib, and indeed the erstwhile Renaissance are all in the past. It is years later and the legendary figures of Jubal, Tempus, Shadowspawn, and the Stormchildren are now just memories, myth, and rumor.

But the city and its people live on. A new pantheon of personalities have moved in and are making their mark on this dark and dangerous city.

Meet these denizens of the city where just surviving is a full-time occupation.

Meet Halott the Necromancer, Latilla--daughter of the legendary artist Lalo the Limmer, Dysan the short and scrappy thief, Jake the rat, and a host of others.

Return to Sanctuary and let the games begin!

Reviews of Thieves World: Turning Points


Lynn Abbey has done a good deed in salvaging the inspired setting of Thieves' World and renovating it for a new generation. -- Mark Wilson,

Some of my favorites include "Home is Where the Hate Is," by Mickey Zucker Reichert, pitting the orphaned Dysan against the followers of Sabellia. -- Kelly Rae Cooper, Romantic Times Book Club

Readers who are already familiar with the Thieves' World Series will welcome this return to Sanctuary with a mixture of nostalgia for characters who are no longer appeared, and anticipation for the complex mixture of characters and styles which brought Sanctuary to life in the 80s. -- Steven H Silver, SF Site

This work will surely introduce this wild realm to a host of newcomers and please existing fans with this entertaining swords and sorcery extravaganza. -- Harriet Klausner, The Best Reviews
