A disgraced dwarven hero. A band of deadbeat adventurers. His last shot at redemption could get him killed.
Gorm Ingerson's glory days are a distant memory. Back when he was a hero-for-hire, the Dwarf adventurer slaughtered Orcs and Goblins for credit without a second thought. He never expected that robbing an intrepid adventurer would get him his own pesky Goblin sidekick. With nothing better to do, the hungover Dwarf escorts his tagalong through the wilderness… and ends up roped into a suicidal quest he can't refuse.
On a mission to win back a stolen treasure, Gorm must hold together a bickering team of half-baked heroes and their empty-headed prophet. With each new obstacle, Gorm can sense the powerful men who funded his trip following their every move with a strange fixation. To complete the dangerous mission with his internal organs intact, Gorm must figure out the sinister truth behind the investors’ master plan before he and his misfit band become quest fodder.
