The Dead Friend.
A grieving bodyguard.
An ambitious sorcerer.
A chancellor, haunted by revolution.
A long-dead ally, turned to the art of murder.
Ron Brandywood, halfling martial artist, partners up with Zephyrus Barak, half-dragon sorcerer, to protect the chancellor of Br’Ir-Al-Asad from an assassin who can even turn the bodies of their victims into weapons. Ron must draw on every ounce of determination and skill to protect his two clients, because his opponent is perhaps more savage and inventive than anyone he’s ever faced.
