About the Book:
It’s January of 1704, and Matthew Corbett continues his mission to Italy, accompanied by Hudson Greathouse and former enemy Professor Fell. They seek Brazio Valeriani and information about the mirror created by his father, the sorcerer Ciro. Legend claims the mirror can be used to summon demons from beyond.

But fate has other plans for Matthew as their ship is disabled by a pod of whales, and they seek refuge on a secluded island. The islanders welcome them with a massive feast, but all is not what it seems. As the island pulls them deeper into its influence, the castaways struggle to maintain their grip on reality, even their very identity. Matthew must keep his wits about him and solve the mystery enshrouding the other side of the island, where an active volcano looms and a secretive creature lurks.

The King of Shadows is the eighth installment in bestselling author Robert McCammon’s acclaimed series of historical thrillers featuring Matthew Corbett, a brave “problem-solver” who now faces a challenging foe that threatens to take over his most valuable resource: his own mind.

NOTE: Our general policy is to automatically match numbers on a new book for our previous customers, but we recognize this is an unusual situation since the previous Limited Editions of this series have been published by other publishers. If you would like us to try to match the number you have for past volumes in the series, please place your order first and then email your information to We will do our very best to match as many numbers as we can.

NOTE: There will be a Lettered Edition, but due to the circumstances listed above (trying to match letters to past volumes sold from other publishers), we’re waiting to offer that edition for sale until closer to its publication this summer. If you own the Lettered Edition of Cardinal Black from Cemetery Dance Publications and want to match your letter, please email right away and let him know your letter, so he can put you on the contact list for when the edition is available. Because we have existing customers who automatically receive the same letter on every book we publish, we may not be able to match your letter, but we will do our very best to accommodate all requests.
