World of the Five Gods: Penric's Mission
Signed by the author on the title page. Learned Penric sails to Cedonia disguised as a young lawyer on business. His real mission is clandestine diplomacy on behalf of the Duke of Adria. His usual traveling companion, the slyly clever chaos demon Desdemona, is the only one in on the secret - or so it's supposed to be. Instead, upon arrival, Penric finds himself gravely injured, and imprisoned in the darkest of dungeons. Escape will not be easy: Penric has more than one brush with disaster in his immediate future, as well as a meeting with an intriguing young widow.
