Synopsis of Promise of the Witch King
Promise of the Witch-King
is an original hardcover novel that follows Servant of the Shard
, Book I in The Sellswords Series. The story tracks the adventures of assassin Artemis Entreri and his dark elf companion Jarlaxle as they venture through the wild, demon-haunted Bloodstone Lands. Before long, they discover themselves caught in the middle of a struggle between powerful forces that would like nothing more than to see them dead...or worse. But Entreri and Jarlaxle are no ordinary assassins ... caught between the ghost of a power-mad lich, and the righteous fury of an oath-bound knight, they have never felt more at home.
A classic fantasy tale with broad moral themes and plenty of action, Promise of the Witch-King explores the consequences of tampering with death, the bonds of friendship, and the essence of good and evil.
