    So here’s the plan: Kill the demon, steal the treasure, and retire to a life of luxury! It sounds easy when put like that. However, most unfortunately for warrior-priest Egil and sneak thief Nix, when the demon they kill turns out to have worshippers in high places, retirement is not an option. A wonderfully fast-paced fantasy adventure redolent of the classic tales of swords and sorcery, from New York Times best-selling author Paul S. Kemp.

    4 stars standard sword and sorcery fantasy

    Since 'The Lies of Locke Lamora', I can not seem to pass any fantasy book with thieves and promise of humor. This book however is not of a caliber of..Show More »

    Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really - they have! No more sword - and hammer - play for them! But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild. And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head....

    Amazing

    Simply amazing from start to finish. Paul S. Kemp will go down in history as one of the best writers that ever lived.

    Nix is a nimble thief with just enough knowledge of magic to get into serious trouble. Egil is the only priest of a discredited god. Together they seek riches and renown, but somehow it is always misadventure and mayhem that find them - even in the dive bar they call home. And their luck has yet to change.

    Paul's done it again

    I just finished it last night. I've always thought of Egil and Nix second rate characters/books compared to Erevis Cale and his books... Not the case ..Show More »

    Egil and Nix feature in the sword and sorcery novels, The Hammer and the Blade, A Discourse in Steel, and A Conversation in Blood. Their stories are pacy, filled with action and wit. They are a cross of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, spiced with a bit of Conan and Indiana Jones.
