The Shade and His Thief

by R. Phoenix & Adara Wolf

Desperate thief Myth needs one big score to get himself out of a serious hole. Why not steal from his royal father, who refuses to acknowledge him? Unfortunately, the ornate amulet he steals is bad news. Now everybody is out for Myth's blood.

Callan should be just one of the many people after Myth--but Callan isn't a person at all. He's a shade, a creature of shadow and magic. Callan is dark, and dangerous, and even worse news than the amulet itself. His dark, shadowy tendrils reach inside Myth and sate a hunger Myth never knew he had.

Myth finds himself falling deeper and deeper into Callan's grasp. He'll lose sight of his goals--he'll lose sight of himself--if he gives in.

But would that be so bad?

The Shade and His Thief can be read as a standalone, but contains spoilers for The Phoenix and His Prince.

About the Author


Adara writes almost exclusive m/m, but she has a fondness for bisexual protagonists. She enjoys a lot of darker themes, so you'll see a lot of that in her works.

When Adara isn't writing, she's reading, painting, playing video games, and rescuing cats. She also enjoys learning about languages and other cultures. If you're ever curious about the kink content of her works, there are content notes for each story on the website. You can also find out more about her works and read some freebies there.


R. Phoenix (code name: Raissa) has an unhealthy fascination with contrasts: light and dark, humor and pain, heroes and villains, order and chaos. She believes love can corrupt, power can redeem and that the best of intentions can cast shadows while the worst can create light. She agrees with those who say that the truth is best told through fiction — even though fiction has to make sense while reality can be utterly baffling.

She loves chatting with readers, though she often awkwardly rambles. No matter how much she tries to keep her bad and often perverted sense of humor in check, it seems to escape at the most inconvenient moments. (Thanks, universe.)
