Publishers’ Description: Egil and Nix have retired, as they always said they would. No, really – they have! No more sword and hammer-play for them!
But when two recent acquaintances come calling for help, our hapless heroes find themselves up against the might of the entire Thieves Guild.
And when kidnapping the leader of the most powerful guild in the land seems like the best course of action, you know you’re in over your head…

This novel was a fun mindless romp through an alternate reality. Great characters, good magic, interesting venues and hot babes thrown in for good measure. The pace of the novel evokes a constant variety of mini-adventures culminating in the grand adventure/conclusion. Egil and Nix are definitely the Abbott and Costello of the fantasy world. There is some filler dialogue that kind of detracts from the novel, but in no way diminishes the overall content. Looking forward to the next.
