After breaking into the Queen's treasury and escaping, Dessa, Topper and Fisk are on the run from her guard and in search of the mysterious Greyfalcon. Of course, they happen to take refuge from a storm at the same inn as the men they're running from.

A greedy innkeeper, his silent wife, and dangerous smugglers round out the cast of this quick adventure that only advances the story one day. Though I find these short episodes kind of frustrating, that really only means I'm so into this story that I'm anxious to find the answers to my questions. What happened to Dessa's brother? What is Greyfalcon hiding? Isn't ol' one-eye really a good guy under his tough exterior?

According to Scott Chantler's blog, the third installment is coming out this fall and will be titled THE CAPTIVE PRINCE. You can see excerpts here:
