Night of the Chalk

Enter a world where the fate of kingdoms are decided by spies with swords and dragons are the only weapon which matters.
Blades, blood, whiskey, and cigarettes have always been a part of the gaming tables in Delhonne. Now there’s a new marker. Dragons have returned to the city. Master spy Aaron Lorne and his team of misfits have a stacked hand at the moment, but enemies nip at their heels. Greedy government agents, entitled nobility, and ruthless street gangs all hunger for a piece of the game. And it will take every scrap of luck the spies have to keep themselves out of a shallow grave.
