Once they were a band of mercenaries who shook the pillars of the world through their cunning, their closely-guarded alchemical brews and stone cold steel. Whoever met their price won. Now, their glory days behind them and their genius leader in hiding, the warriors known as 'the Twenty' are being hunted down and eliminated one by one. A lifetime of enemies has its own price.
Set in a brutal world of subtle magic, clashing empires, and commercial interests, this is an impressive fantasy debut. Selby demonstrates the command of style, character, plotting, and world building of a seasoned author. Booklist
