Valdomar is a wizard for hire. Thanks to his magical talents, he is a tracker and bounty-hunter without peer, with a reputation for honor and fair-dealing. However, when his reckless apprentice lands him in prison, he must accept a deal with a crime boss in order to obtain his freedom.
Forced to scour the ruins of Frostgrave in search of a young woman who stole an unknown magical treasure, he finds more questions than answers. Who is this young woman? What did she steal? And why did she run? More importantly, why is another famous bounty-hunting wizard also on her trail?
As the chase continues, Valdomar finds that his honor is tested time and time again. Which oaths will be broken and which will remain sacred? In the end, the greatest question remains: Can a wizard keep his word in the ruins of the Frozen City?
