Darien by C.F. Iggulden

In the city of Darien, ruled by twelve families desperately clinging to their crumbling power, a plot to murder the King is hatched. It draws six strangers into to the city - Elias, a hunter with a special knack, Deeds, a man who feels no guilt, Tellius, and old swordsman banished from his home, Arthur, a quiet boy with mysterious origins, Daw, a thief and a gambler, and Nancy, whose talents will be the undoing of them all.
