About the Book

Ticca is a newly-minted Dagger, a young honorable mercenary out to prove her worth in the big city. Her first job seems like a simple one, but it sets her on a path to a destiny bigger than she ever dreamed. The friends she makes along the way may have destinies of their own to fulfill: Lebuin a new Journeyman mage and a fastidious dandy, has just learned to his horror that his new rank involves actual journeying - and dirt! And Ticca is worried about Lebuin's humble servant, Ditani, as she is sure he is more than he seems and might be a spy for Lebuin's nemesis.

The three of them are swept into a series of deadly events. Fighting to stay ahead of their adversaries, they stumble into secrets that catapult them towards disaster that even the Gods are not prepared for.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys speculative fiction.[...]" - Larkin Livesay

- "It is hard to believe that this is author's first book. Finally book with only glowing reviews lived up to my expectations.
First of all it's well edited, so I could actually enjoy the story and did not wanted to reach for a red marker. This also applies to the plot and story flow.
Characters are likeable individuals that keep on developing throughout the book. The enemies are complex characters also. Heroes are only as great as the enemies they are facing, in my view.[...]"
