Spring in Styria. And it means war. There had been nineteen bloody years. The ruthless Grand Duke Bear is at odds with the Alliance of Eight, and together they have stained the white land red. As armies advance, heads roll and cities are in flames, behind the scenes banks, priests and ancient and dark forces play a deadly game to choose who will be made king. War might be hell, but for Monza Murcatto, the Serpent of Talins, the most famous and feared mercenary employed by Duke Orso, it’s a damn good way to make money. Her victories, however, made her too famous for the tastes of her patron. Betrayed, cut down in battle and left for dead, Murcatto’s reward is a pile of broken bones and a burning hunger for revenge. Whatever the cost, seven men will have to die. Among his allies: Styria’s least reliable drunk, the most dangerous prisoner, a killer obsessed with numbers and a barbarian who only wants to do the right thing. The number of his enemies is at least half of the nation. And all this before the most dangerous man in the world is sent to find her and finish the job Duke Bear has begun… Spring in Styria. And it means revenge.

Abercrombie wrote the screenplay himself. Producers include David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger for Skydance, Aaron Ryder and Tim Miller for Blur Studios and Abercrombie
