When a small crew of scoundrels, would-be heroes, deviants, and ruffians discover a map that they believe will lead them to a fabled sword buried in the barrow of a long-dead wizard, they think they've struck it rich. But their hopes are dashed when the map turns out to be cursed and then is destroyed in a magical ritual. The loss of the map leaves them dreaming of what might have been, until they rediscover the map in a most unusual and unexpected place.
Stjepan Black-Heart, suspected murderer and renegade royal cartographer; Erim, a young woman masquerading as a man; Gilgwyr, brothel owner extraordinaire; Leigh, an exiled magus under an ignominious cloud; Godewyn Red-Hand, mercenary and troublemaker; Arduin Orwain, scion of a noble family brought low by scandal; and Arduin's sister, Annwyn, the beautiful cause of that scandal: together they form a cross-section of the Middle Kingdoms of the Known World, united by accident and dark design, on a quest that will either get them all in the history books or get them all killed.
"Genuinely inspired, shockingly erotic, and completely fantastic." (John R. Fultz, author of Seven Sorcerers)

If sex sells this book sold out...
Not much to like but if I had to pick it be the end because the it was over. What I liked the least, to much graphic sex every other page some one was banging someone. Heck even a maggot ridden zombie got some and it went in to detail, curse my vivid imagination.
No, it has turned me away from Mark Smylie.
No, see above zombie scene as one reason.
I feel this book would lose about 5 to 6 hours if the author spent less time describing peoples privates and how to fit them to. I'm no prude but after the unicorn horn strap on enough is enough.
