More than Monsters Publisher's summary

"Orcs and fights and treasure, and a little slip of a girl to lead us to it!"

The frontier town of Retham is doomed. A monster invasion overran the garrison and sacked the baron's country estate. The army that chased them back to the wilderness was ambushed by a much larger force of orcs. They barely escaped with their lives. Now all the frontiersmen and homesteaders are hiding behind the town's defensive walls.

Baron Rethamir should have got more soldiers from the duke, but instead he hired mercenaries. No, not mercenaries, sicarians. Big city heroes for hire and they're licensed to use magic. They'd be fine but there's only four of them and they have to beat a swarm of five hundred monsters or more. An orphaned peasant turned hunter named Cora has to lead these four scoundrels to the heart of the orc army. And they haven't sobered since they arrived.

Welcome to the fantasy world of Phlegam. Knights and quests have been replaced by musketeers, cannons and chartered companies of heroes. Magic infuses this early industrial age, and the aristocracy clings to power with the help of the help of the Court Church’s divine power.

Like our own Enlightenment Age, this land is known for constant wars between nobles, but those leaders must also fight the monsters of the frontier. You will discover more battle and adventure in this short tale than most books ten times as long.
