IMPOSSIBLE MISSION. A LEGEND IN THE MAKING.
A warrior with nothing to
fight for is paired with a thieving assassin with nothing to lose.
Together they must steal a treasure that no one can reach. The Crown
Tower is the impregnable remains of the grandest fortress ever built and
home to the realm’s most valuable possessions. But it isn’t gold or
jewels the old wizard is after, and this prize can only be obtained by
the combined talents of two remarkable men. Now if Arcadias can just
keep Hadrian and Royce from killing each other, they just might succeed.
