Ill Met in Lankhmar Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ill Met in Lankhmar

Lankhmar, the marsh-bound city of the seven smokes, and the black toga, is the meeting place for the second time for Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, who the first time around merely spied each other from afar, but had a feeling their destinies were to be entwined. And so, under cover of darkness and in the swirling lankmarian fog they join forces to attack and rob a gang of thieves from the Thieves' Guild. A simple mater for the sword adept twain, but one that unfortunately for them, leads to the demise of their girlfriends, Ivrian and Vlana: their being devoured by wizard summoned rats, a matter that will haunt them for many years to come.
