In the first book of the Merchant Blades series, come on a swashbuckling adventure, battling through snow-covered mountains, across deserts and into pyramids, into the lavish balls of the Duchy of Pella, and onwards with swordfights, werewolves and giant snakes, and confronting the formidable Queen of the Night!
