---------Marvelous traditional sword and sorcery by a master!---------
This is Book 6 of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser... wherein the gods, the sea, and Death himself conspire to lure our heroes into the Shadow Lands, but they follow their true mistress, Adventure.
They are the two greatest heroes the world has ever known: rogues and brawlers, to be sure, but also powerful swordsmen of inimitable daring and skill. In the twisted streets of Lankhmar it is said that there is no danger they haven't out-faced, no strange sight they haven't seen.
Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser would have agreed--until two mysterious ladies enticed them on a journey to Rime Isle, a legendary land that proved to be all too real as they confronted the treachery of gods and men, and an ancient evil that was nearly their undoing in their most perilous adventure yet.
