Synopsis:

Once they were a band of mercenaries who shook the pillars of the world through cunning, alchemical brews, and cold steel. Whoever met their price won.
Now, their glory days behind them, scattered to the wind, and their genius leader in hiding, they are being hunted down and eliminated one by one. 
A lifetime of enemies has its own price. 
Adrian Selby brings us into an unforgettable new world filled with magic, mystery, intrigue, bloodshed and betrayal.

Review:

OH. THE. DISAPPOINTMENT.

This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2016. I was super thrilled when I received an ARC through NetGalley. I couldn’t wait to jump right in. However, the excitement was quickly overtaken by sheer confusion. The book didn’t make any sense. Who are these people? What’s going on? Why do I care? These were my thoughts through most of the book and by the time I figured out the answer to my first two questions, I really didn’t care. The book is so haphazard, no real plot structure, no real story, no characters to love or love to hate…

No quotes, due to the fact that this was an ARC.
