Publisher's Summary

Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really - they have! No more sword - and hammer - play for them! But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild. And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head....
A wonderfully fast-paced fantasy adventure in classic swords and sorcery style, from New York Times best-selling author, Paul S. Kemp.

Very thought provoking

straight into the pits of darkness with our hardened duo. Its not easy trying to be a good (well better at least) man, but they make a go at it. The first book introduced the pair of reluctant heroes, this one built upon that and dug deeper into their foundation.

The adventure, or rather race as it were, reminds me of many a late night D&D campaign. Especially the 'screw it and screw them, we'll kill those bungholes!' parts. The characters are made for the purpose of their conflict resolution(class and fighting style) but have such a great depth of role-play in their voices.

It won't end as you expect or leave you disappointed either. I personally walked away yet again with a the thoughts and ideals of how one becomes a better man, or even if you can tell once you are.

Great book.

Fantastic story

A great fantasy story! I really enjoyed the non epic feel of it. Such a refreshing change of pace.
