Product Description: As a thief, Malden is unparalleled in the Free City of Ness, and happy there. But by saving the life of the knight Croy, Malden has bound himself to an ancient, noble brotherhood...and he now possesses one of only seven Ancient Blades capable of destroying demons.
Malden fears accompanying Croy and the barbarian MÍrget on their quest to dispatch a foul creature of nightmare...nor does he want to disturb the vengeful dead. But with an assassin on his heels, the young cutpurse is left with no choice. And there is the comely sorceress, Cythera, to consider-- promised to Croy but in love with Malden--not to mention the fabulous treasure rumored to be hidden in the depths of the demon's lair....
