The life of a sell-sword is a hard one, and trouble always seems to find even the most well-meaning mercenary....
Rutger and Taryn are scraping by in the infamous Port of Deceit, a place where two skilled mercenaries should have no trouble finding work. But an ominous shadow has fallen across the city of Five Fingers, and an ancient evil has come to gorge itself on the agony and suffering that have long been the city’s stock and trade. Rutger and Taryn are dragged into a tangled plot of danger and intrigue as they face a terrifying Cryxian invasion and a vengeful specter from their past. When the vile leader of the Cryxian incursion takes an unhealthy interest in the two, the stakes get impossibly high, and Rutger and Taryn must fight to survive the Night of the Necrotech.
Normally I don't bother with books that are under 8 hours, but I have to confess this series is pretty awesome. The world of Warmachine has a depth and uniqueness all it's own. I don't play the table top game, but this book really made me fall in love with the world and I was very entertained.

...Marco's voice is a little different from the first book... other than that I enjoyed it a lot :)
so excellent! the narration so complimented the story. a most thrilling look into the iron kingdoms.
Good book with a very good plot line. A worthy second book and still as spot on as the last
The book was well written. The story line kept you engaged. The characters made you have a connection to them.
