You wouldn’t know it to see him now, but Sterling Shade was once a prodigy enchanter, and a powerful and respected wizard. Partnered with the most talented tinker in the empire, he had it all – a beautiful and talented fiancée and a promising life ahead. Until the unthinkable murder of his father and his bride-to-be sent him spinning.
Now, ten years later, Sterling is a drunk. He lives a life of debauchery and excess, contracting as a mage for hire for the seedy underworld of the city.
He has no plans to change his lecherous and carefree ways.
But when a whore at a brothel called Ruby’s Place is brutally murdered, Sterling is tasked with following the clues.
Little does he know, he’s about to come face to face with the past he’s been trying so desperately to forget.
Misery doesn’t love company. It loves revenge!

After being run out of his latest home, Vindin stumbles upon Beronius Avertine, a disgraced paladin of Antrol, living isolated in the woods. Vindin learns that Beronius has been cursed and lives as a recluse to keep from harming innocents by the full moon.
