Fooling a gryphon? Not her ideal day of treasure hunting...
After a hunter cheats Nuaka in a game of cards, she's ready for payback. A few shapeshifting ribbons later, she sneaks into his room and steals a promising set of directions to the local ruins—and treasure horde.
If she gets the treasure before he does, she'll be rich, and that cheater will learn his lesson:
Don't mess with the shapeshifter.
At first, everything goes smoothly.
And then she runs into the gryphon.
Can she use her wit and her magic to make it out of the ruins alive... and with her treasure?
