In crossing Togril Vloth, the ruthless leader of Teranor’s most powerful thieves’ guild, bounty huntress Argentia Dasani has made a dangerous mistake. Now she is learning that the Guildmaster’s memory is long—and that the reach of his vengeance is longer still.
After failing to kill Argentia, Vloth has sent twin assassins with a cunning plan: abduct her butler, Ikabod, as bait in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. Playing not only for her own life but Ikabod’s as well, Argentia teams up with a very unlikely group of allies to take the fight to Vloth and his minions.
As the desperate chase to rescue Ikabod leads from the streets of Argo through the sewers of Telarban to the Ice Reaches of Frijd, one thing becomes all too clear: not everyone who runs the Guildmaster’s gauntlet will live to see its end.
