HER WAREHOUSES BULGED WITH THE GOODS OF THE SOUTHERN SEAS. SHE HAD THE SPIDER-GOD TO THANK FOR HER PROSPERITY.But beneath Hagias ancient bargain with the ARak lay the direst danger. That mercenary kingdom had mortgaged its soul in its pact with the giant arachnoid. When the note fell due, death of the most hideous kind awaited the multitudes of that affluent and bustling nation.As Hagias debt falls due, two foreigners arrive in Big Quay, her capital: Lagademe and her team, foremost among the worlds Nuncios -- deliverers of anything to anywhere -- and Nifft the Lean, thief and rogue extraordinaire.Nifft and Lagademe, strangers to one another at the outset, will soon be struggling side by side for their lives -- and a nations survival -- against the most hideous foe in the annals of Sword and Sorcery fiction.
