Pantania Pommel doesn't look like much-a slight woman with an unkempt shock of red hair, who happens to be mistress of the second most powerful thieves' guild in Anglea. But second isn't good enough, so she starts a plot to overthrow the rival guild. Her sword, which speaks in her mind and gives her headaches, has loftier goals. With the fate of the kingdom in the balance, it falls on the shoulders of two lower ranking members of the Church of Alinard to thwart her evil plans. Can they succeed before her dreams come to fruition or before the Church's dark secret is revealed? With illustrations by Brandon Dale Keen.
