Picked this up because cover said “Legends of the Riftwar”.

Alas, it was a disappointment. Basically it’s about three mercenaries who’s hired as bodyguards. They get involved in the political maneuverings between the barons.

Ends up in a place called LaMut.

The murder occurs in the last chapter of the book.

I don’t get the story.

There were lots of other interesting angles hinted (e.g. fearsome warriors — alien and human — that the human mercenaries were hired to fight) but not fully explored.

Disappointing read.
