Life is tough in a lawless frontier town and things don't get better if you’re ugly as death.
Zira, barmaid in the worst tavern on the port, looks for a new job, but she has no idea she's going to be the only one to know when the whole city will be destroyed.
And to make matters worse, she has to deal with a deadly and uncontrollable trunk, a crazy alchemist and creatures that are not supposed to exist in the world.
“I’m not carrying anything if you don’t tell me what this stuff is!”
“Didn’t you want an adventure? Here it is.” Zira placed a hand on the slimy lid.
“We’ve got less than two hours before this thing destroys the city. Will you help me now?”
“By ‘destroy’ you mean…”
“I mean exactly that. We’ll be less than dust.”
“How the hell do you know?”
How could she summarize all that had happened from when she first found that message on the tavern’s beam up until now and give a plausible explanation?
“…I am a witch.”
Piluk let out a long whistle that vibrated between his rabbit teeth.
“That explains the face and all the rest. I can’t believe it! I’m going to be the assistant of a witch!”
“Yeah, sure. Now take that damn handle and help me lift it!”
Piluk nodded vigorously, with his protruding ears tomato-red from the excitement.
