All it cost was my sanity.
But sane or not, Lord Morvilind has work for me to do. This time, he wants me to work with the brutal and murderous Rebels.
And unless I'm clever, the Rebels will start their revolution with my death...
Ridmark Arban is the Shield Knight, questing to stop the rise of the evil New God. But Ridmark and his companions are caught in the war between the final remnant of the dying gray elves and the brutal muridach horde.
Unless Ridmark can save the gray elves, he and his friends will die, and the New God will rise in power to enslave the world...
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.
For how can a knight fight the shadows in his mind?
Bad enough that Lord Morvilind is forcing me to work with the Rebels. Even worse, the murderous Rebels want me dead.
But this time, the Rebels want me to rob a bank.
Specifically, the Royal Bank itself, the best-defended building in North America.
And unless I do something really clever, I'm going to take the fall for the heist of the century…
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…
Specifically, she carries the Ring of Rasarion Yagar, a relic created by the tyrannical necromancer-king who once ruled Ulkaar. The deadly sorcerers of the malevolent Umbarian Order wish to seize the Ring for themselves, as do the sinister priests of the ruthless Temnoti cult.
And to make matters worse, the Ring is not the only powerful relic of Rasarion Yagar.
And unless Caina can escape her foes, the wielders of those relics will kill her...
