Ol'world has been ripped apart by war and magic. A rift deeper than the bounds of time. The magi abuse their powers and instill fear over all the land. With the promise of safety, the middles all live in fear and comfort.
When a barbarian from the far north runs into a mysterious woman looking for a thief, everything on the surface and in other realms changes.
Patticus Mysticus is a happy thief trying to win back the Kingdom of Ellish from the inside out when a risky helping hand ruins his normal way of life and forces him and his guild to make bolder decisions. Making matters worse, two pariahs show up unannounced and condemn Patticus to the breaking of a sacred code.
Running from his friends, he meets new ones, and a reluctant hero becomes the king of thieves.
