The Warlock (The Wanderers Cycle) by C.V. Vobh
The Heir of Malagroth one day; robbing merchants of mystery meats the next. So begins the tale of Shadin, an exile whose family was murdered by usurpers of the throne. He has fallen farther than he thought possible—and then a bit more too. But he has his life, which is more than can be said of anyone else he's ever cared about. And he has some power too—more, some would say, than any man has a right to. Now, driven by a life-defining need for vengeance, he is as dark and inexorable as the night. But first, he has to eat. This is a short story in The Wanderers Cycle and a perfect choice for starting the series.
