The Bloodbaths

by Steve Libbey

Crixus Oraan is a water artesan, an engineer who builds aqueducts and piping for bathhouses and mansions in the empire of Rond. His guild has entrusted him with a large sum of gold, but in a misguided effort to win enough to buy a lavish house for his new fiancé Kharrina, he loses the guild's gold in a card game. In this first volume of the Aqua Pura Trilogy, Crixus finds employment with the Lamiae of Nistru, a cruel society where those at the top bathe in the lifeblood of those at the bottom. Will his conscience allow him to finish the job?
