There are some tall stories about the caverns beneath the Citadel - about magic and mages and 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 rumours.

But then a crippled nobleman with a dead man's name offers them a job: exploring the Citadel's darkest depths. It sounds like just another quest with gold and adventure ...if they're lucky, they might even have a tale of their own to tell once it's over.

These reckless adventurers will soon learn that sometimes there is truth in rumour. Sometimes a story can save your life.

Good story and nice writing. While I felt at times like it was a little to open about what may happen, it was different then your dime a dozen stories. Refreshing read, will keep an eye for new material

Nice premise, little generic adventure/revenge factor there but still entertaining. The use of magic while unique, did not seem very effective as it relied on written words...what if it got erased or destroyed? then you have no magic and are stuck, but in this book there was no such danger the rags seemed extremely durable even under threat of fire. Also the main villain that they had to defeat was very one dimensional and at the end was not as powerful as first described. This book would have been better with a stronger, more developed villain, a few more modifications on the magical aspect. And more character development on frith. Or the author should have made Sebastian the main character instead.

There were a few places where the writing sort of faltered while the story kept going. Otherwise it was pretty cool, like reading about a good D&D campaign.

I found this book to be very tasteful. Full of action and adventure. Also very detailed for my imagination to follow. I can't wait for the next one in January.
