You have seen and done things that were never supposed to be, and I have come here to offer you a choice. You can try and go back to your lives as they were, fighting the Knights and relieving people of their possessions... ...or you can help me. Help me make sure that what happened to you doesn't happen to anyone else ever again. Arrym is a Wraith, one of an elite band of thieves notorious for taking on big jobs. He has all the talent in the world, but what little motivation he once had has all but dried up. Branak has the opposite problem. He is a Wisp, a newly inducted member of the guild, with seemingly misplaced dreams of greatness. He is determined to prove himself in the eyes of his superiors and take his place among the Wraiths. They are partners. In the midst of completing a job and evading their sworn enemies, the Knights of the Thorn, they are presented with a bigger job. Much bigger...and far more noble than they would typically agree to.
