For Azoth, survival is precarious. As a guild rat, he’s grown up in the slums, and learned the hard way to judge people quickly and to take risks. Moreover, risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But for Durzo to accept Azoth, he must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.
