Volume II, Book II of the Abaddon Trilogy.
Laiel Brockade has been found. Fallen down a dark hole for a year, he’s been rescued and brought up into the light once more. But he’s not doing so good. He looks a little chipped around the edges, like a smile with broken teeth. But he’s making his big comeback. And with one of the Devil’s own sons, a ‘Big Comeback’ takes on fantastic, destructive new meaning. His gang’s teeming with monsters and brimming with magic, and they’re out for blood. The problem is, they aren’t wise to the true depths of evil within the man they’re jobbing for. Laiel has some ideas all his own on how exactly to hop, skip, and jump his way to the other side of the checkerboard of darkness. The jester of the Devil’s court, your friend and mine, Mr. Laiel Arturus Brockade, is nearly positioned to shout “King Me!” That, or he’ll flip over the gameboard and shoot his opponent dead. Either way, he’s not just playing to win… He’s cheating.
