But now the consequences have caught up with me
I owe a favor to the powerful Knight of Grayhold, and the time has come to pay up.
And unless I do something clever, repaying that favor is going to get me killed...
Ridmark has learned that the sorceress Cathala holds the secret of the Seven Swords, and quests to free her from the grasp of an imprisoning spell.
But the Maledicti priests know of Ridmark's quest, and plot to stop him with a deadly new weapon.

Two items I've stolen for the Rebels, and I only need to steal one more thing for them.
Trouble is, it's in Last Judge Mountain, a secret military base left over from before the High Queen of the Elves conquered Earth.
There are things in Last Judge Mountain that should never again see the light of day.
And if I go into the mountain, I might never come out again...
I don't care about the High Queen, or the Rebels seeking to overthrow her. All I care about is getting my baby brother the treatments he needs to recover from his potentially fatal disease…and those treatments have a steep price.
Fortunately, I have magic of my own, and I'm a very, very good thief.
Unfortunately, the powerful Elven lord Morvilind has a hold over me. If I don't follow his commands, my brother is going to die.
Of course, given how dangerous Morvilind’s missions are, I might not live long enough to see my brother’s death…
As the Padishah of Istarinmul prepares to make peace with the Emperor, the Ghosts must keep the Padishah’s ambassador safe from assassins.

The war in the north is coming to an end, but more and more it seems neither brother, Arthur or Sebastian, will end as the true victor. The priest Luther rallies an army of Karak, his aims unclear. Further north, Cyric continues to proclaim himself a god, and his followers are many. Caught between two enemies, Darius and Jerico must stand together to prevent the destruction of everything they hold dear.
And the key to their victory might be someone sworn to kill them both.
