"Jarlaxle and Entreri have travelled a long road since their lives intertwined in the deserts of Calimshan. Far tot he north, the frozen tundra of the Bloodstone Lands proves no less forgiving. Hiring on as sellswords, they soon find themselves caught in the middle of forces that hope to use them as muscle, then cast them aside. But mercenary captain Jarlaxle Baenre and cold-hearted assissin Artemis Entreri have plans of their own. Using them will come at a high cost, and casting them aside will prove impossible."
