Meet Easie Demasco, rogue, thieving swine and total charmer.
He's a sneak thief and a con man, but even the wicked cannot rest when their land is invaded by an army of mercenaries commanding an unstoppable weapon, magically-enslaved giants. Only, well, he's somehow managed to make off not only with the warlord's treasure, but also the special stone that controls the giants. Which means he now has an entire army on his tail.
“A fast-paced, witty and original fantasy, reminiscent of Scott Lynch and Fritz Leiber.” - Adrian Tchaikovsky, author of the Shadows of the Apt series
“Fast-paced, quick-witted, engaging; as apt a description of Easie Damasco, reluctant hero, as of the novel itself.” - Juliet E. McKenna, author of The Tales of Einarinn
