Little by little Rob has been gaining the strength he needs to protect not only himself, but the family and town he is coming to love.
One threat has been removed but a new criminal element has moved into town. This one seems more organized and has Rob scrambling to decipher their plans. Worse: they seem to know things about Rob that even he doesn’t.
This time freedom is on the line as these new criminals are more interested in convincing Rob to join them than in killing him.
But Rob isn’t the only one struggling with freedom. Mursha the beautiful orc would rather be a blacksmith or a warrior than the domestic path set out by her father.
The investigations are open but Rob won’t let the trail grow cold as he tracks down the answers they need.
