A watchman of the Yenara City guard has gone missing. The culprit could be any of the usual suspects: drug-dealing orcs, mind-controlling elves, uncooperative mages, or humans being typical humans.
It's up to two reluctant partners -- Rem, a hungover miscreant who joins the Watch to pay off his bail, and Torval, a maul-wielding dwarf who's highly unimpressed with the untrained and weaponless Rem -- to uncover the truth and catch the murderer loose in their fair city.
"A brilliant premise, wonderfully told. A city that breathes, and heroes you can't help but root for."-- Nicholas Eames, author ofKings of the Wyld
"A glorious tour through fantasy's seamier side. A wilder ride than Middle Earth, and you'll love every minute of it!"-- Jon Hollins, author of the Dragon Lords series
Dale Lucas is a novelist, screenwriter, and film critic from St. Petersburg, Florida.
