Corgren more than holds his own in the prize fighting rings where skill with a knife is the only mercy he’ll find. While an old enemy haunts his memory, new ones gather with each victory gained.
Corgren’s choices narrow.
A stranger offers Corgren power for his service, tempting him with revenge for past wrongs. He considers the offer with doubt. Demands for a cut of his winnings squeezes his independence until a foe possibly more skilled and cunning than him enters the ring.
Will he accept the offer at the cost of himself?
Review: I thoroughly enjoyed this short prequel. It is filled with action from the start, and well constructed. The characters are well-developed for a short story and I found it easy to follow.
I shall most certainly be following up with The Bow of Destiny in the not too distant future.
