Synopsis ~

Write-up from back of both tradepaper and paperback editions ~

Since the arrival of the Three Lordly Ones centuries ago, all manner of folk have flocked to Ithkar Fair – to trade, to venerate, to scheme, and to game. In truth, they are a motley company. Come to Ithkar Fair and meet a washerwoman’s son who seems to be a deadly (if amiable) assassin…a promising magician’s apprentice who finds the price of mastery quite high…a magnificent stallion with a strange affinity for his owner’s daughter…a young girl with a gift disguised as a disfigurement…a fiddler whose dream is realized in an unexpected way…and a cat who is more than merely a cat. All these and others have paid their gate-offering to find what they seek – and what they never expected – at Ithkar Fair.
