Official Summary: “Loren and Ebon don’t want anyone to die—but that might not be up to them. A short story of the world of Underrealm.
Loren of the family Nelda is an aspiring thief and adventurer. She only has one rule: never take a life. But one night she stumbles into a tavern where that sort of thinking can get you killed quick.
Ebon of the family Drayden is a student at the Academy for Wizards. He’s trying to uncover a deadly conspiracy that could lead to war. But intrigue is thirsty work, and a nighttime tavern visit is irresistible…
Each of them just wanted a quiet night, to have a few drinks and forget about their troubles for a while. But it remains to be seen if everyone will escape the tavern alive…
The Chronicles of Underrealm are tales you won’t find anywhere else. They’re ideal for Underrealm’s biggest fans, and they can be read in any order. ” – Goodreads
Review: Feel like I am missing out on so much. I am only 2 books into the main series and boy do I have a lot to look forward too. This short story has made me want to read the other series so much more. It felt like a complete story but at the same time not. It left you wanting to know more, wanting to know who these people were. Which is what a short story to a series is meant to do. Suck you in.
I liked how it brought in elements from the main series and some of the other series. It let you see a snippet of each series and make you go hmm I need to read that too.
Overall it added a nice layer to the world of Underrealm.
