A pair of sellswords and a fallen nobleman become the world's unlikely—and only—hope against a dark force bent on destruction
There have always been tall tales of the caverns beneath the Citadel—tales about magic and mages, monsters and gods. Wydrin of Crosshaven has heard them all, but she's spent long enough trawling caverns and taverns with her companion Sir Sebastian to learn that there's no money to be made in chasing rumors.
So when a crippled nobleman named Lord Frith offers them a job exploring the Citadel’s darkest depths, it sounds like just another quest. For Wydrin and Sebastian, it comes with the exciting possibility of gold, adventure, and fame. For Lord Frith, it's a chance to avenge everything that was taken from him.
But soon, these reckless adventurers will realize that what lies ahead is far bigger than their own goals, desires, and imaginations. Sometimes there is truth in rumor—and sometimes a story can save your life.
