Taran is a strong, confident swordswoman who had the misfortune of capturing the interest of the wicked Lord Baqus. She has wanted nothing more than to escape his evil black tower, but now that she is free and on the run she has nowhere to go except the sprawling and ancient Volfost Marsh. With Lord Baqus's team of Houndsmen and a pack of rabid scale-beasts at her heels, Taran finds herself lost deep in the tangled darkness of the swamp. It isn't until the Houndsmen have her cornered that help comes from an unlikely source — a source that could become her greatest ally. This action-fantasy story features a fast-paced narrative and some many-limbed erotica.
