The Holy Thief by William Ryan
"An advance copy, also known as an advance reading copy or ARC, is a copy of a book released by its publisher before the book has gone to press for a complete printing. ARCs are normally distributed to reviewers, bookstores, magazines, and (in some cases) libraries in limited quantities and as such are rarer than an actual first edition. They occasionally appear with cover art that is different from the actual market edition."
