In the dead city of Mechitar, where vampires and zombies rub shoulders with still-living citizens, life—or the lack thereof—is a delicate balance. For plucky thief Omaire, it's a perfect setting for a girl with quick hands and even quicker feet who's looking to grab a little cash. But when her bumbling ghoul associate brings her into contact with a human Pathfinder disguised as a zombie, things quickly become a whirlwind of crime lords, covert scholars, and human chattel raised to the slaughter. Can the quick-witted rogue stay one step ahead of the competition, or is she destined to join the ranks of the shambling dead?
From author J. C. Hay comes an urban adventure in a city of the dead, set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder campaign setting.
