The Wolf Among Rats

After convincing the princess to release him, Kar'Desh is enlisted as her personal soldier while under watch from his captors, the temple of Sol. In an attempt to erase his past, he entangles his family in a web of lies and crime that will surely kill them unless he can free them from the clutches of his old boss and nobleman, Nick Épicier.

With his family under threat, Kar'Desh must continue to work as a thug and thief for Épicier while hiding his actions from the ever watchful temple. The only sure-fire method to save his family, is to start a war between noble families and kill Nick Épicier.

A warning for the squeamish. This web novel contains gore (dismemberment, torture, and general medieval brutality)
