You're invited to the wedding of the year! In lieu of gifts, the bride and groom humbly ask that you do not try to murder them.
After barely surviving Habbatarr the lich-lord and the Dead City of Hesre, Derek Strongarm and Felix Lightfoot and their companions are ready for some well-deserved rest. All they want now is good food, cold beer, a warm bed, and maybe a few days without someone trying to kill them.
And then they encounter a damsel in distress and, well, so much for that idea.
The damsel in question is the Lady Alyssa Spendle, a spoiled noble promised to Lord Paradim as part of a brokered political marriage, and the distress comes in the form of a determined group of kidnappers looking to make a quick profit off Alyssa's ransom.
Derek and Felix learn there's much more to this plot, and the heroes soon find themselves entangled in a vast conspiracy that threatens to topple a kingdom and take them down with it in the process.
Get ready for another wild adventure with Strongarm and Lightfoot as they fight for their lives against backstabbing thieves, cutthroat mercenaries, the crime lords knows as the Seven Jewels, and the mysterious assassin Ruined Isys.
The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot - Assassins Brawl is the second book in the irreverent fantasy series by author Michael Bailey (Action Figures), a tale filled with noble heroes, dastardly villains, a colorful secondary cast, mildly interesting background characters, a bunch of people who don't even get names, political intrigue, thrilling action, and snarky asides that don't advance the plot much but keep things from getting too serious.

This was a fun romp starting us on what I hope is a long journey through the fantasy world of Ne'lan. The characters are fun and relatable, especially if you've ever played an rpg. The narration is smooth, exciting and done with impeccable timing and panache. I've listened to this several times and it is always fun. Kudos to Michael C. Bailey on writing an excellent book and Heather S Auden for bringing it to life for us here. I am happy to share this with everyone I know that enjoys the fantasy genre or any rpg.
