Shadowbred is the first book in the The Twilight War trilogy by Paul S. Kemp. Erevis Cale, struggling to preserve his humanity from a transformation into a shade, struggles alongside Drasek Riven to find and free their friend, Mags, from Sakkors. In doing so, the group slows Netheril's tightening grip on Sembia.

The Lady has spoken to me.

It has already begun.

Shadows move out of the shrinking desert, south to the rich and arrogant cities of Sembia.

"Be brave, little man," says the shadowman, and the boy thinks his voice is surprisingly soft. "Stay with your mother. This will be over soon."

The shadows swallow him and he is gone.

On the edge of a war that will change the face of Faerûn, the world will find that not all shadows serve Shade Enclave.
