The Blackscale Thief
A Conspiracy of Rogues
There’s never been a scam like the city of Abattra. People are drawn to it by the promise of riches and a chance to start over, but the only ones prospering are the Resplendent oligarchs.
The young dragon Greasetrap is looking to change that. Raised to be a thief in the Blackscale crew, he’s in town alongside his siblings to steal a fortune. With the help of a street-savvy fighter they intend to rob the oligarchs of the city for the first time in history. But Greasetrap isn’t the only one with a scheme, and soon he’ll find himself up against a sorcerer’s vicious criminal gang.
Because the vault everyone wants to break into hides more than just gold—it holds the key to an ancient secret held dear by the most powerful Resplendents in Abattra.
After a successful heist, the Blackscale crew is ready to make their escape from the monument city of Abattra. There’s just one little problem: the young dragon Greasetrap is missing, separated from his family in the chaos of the robbery.
While his family scrambles to find him, Greasetrap finds himself on his own for the first time. And much to his annoyance, his theft of a gaudy mask has everyone in the city looking for him.
As villains close in on all sides and blood begins to spill, Greasetrap finds himself faced with a choice: rejoin the Blackscale crew and flee the city, or take a stand for all the innocents paying the price for their antics?
Because the Resplendents will do anything to get the mask back, even if that means waking the immortal horror slumbering beneath the streets of the city.
