A Bargain with Darkness
The savage criminals of Hell's Labyrinth will not rest...not until Vazeer the Lash is pushed to unspeakable limits.
Vazeer has survived the Narrow Bid, but his life still hangs in the balance. The Raving Blade is sadistic and power-hungry, ready to tear Vazeer's fragile world apart. If assassinating his enemy is impossible, then Vazeer must consider striking a bargain with him instead - a pact sure to draw him deeper into a world of crime and violence.
Occult conspiracies, double-crossing allies, ex-lovers, and psychotic enemies threaten to plunge Vazeer further into darkness. But can embracing darkness bring him to the light, or will Hell's Labyrinth continue to swallow him whole?
