Pulled from death row and recruited by the secretive inquisition to steal an artifact called The Myros Pendulum, Stilian Desault now paired with an old colleague, Veina must put together a group of Brigands for the heist of their lives. But there are no happy endings or quick deaths for battle-forged blades. Stilian will soon discover that things are about to go very wrong.
Out to recruit more brigands for their heist, Stilian Desault and Veina arrive at the Barren Halls Prison. They’ve come with a box full of stolen gold to buy a good man his freedom. But the trouble with smart people making dodgy deals is they don’t settle for less and often get more than they bargained for. There’s new management in-charge of Barren Halls and they’re not about to let anyone go free.
