After escaping the battle-train in a stolen ornithopter, Davrick, Sid, and Talyaana are out of fuel and forced to land. Pursued by enemy search parties, the trio sets off across the scarred battlefields of a kingdom crushed by unrelenting war. Finding refuge with an old farmer and his wife, they soon learn of the rival mercenary companies quarreling over a valuable alchemical refinery—a refinery that might just have what they need to refuel their thopter and make their escape.
With an audacious plan to dupe the enemy mercs and snag the fuel, the team finds themselves caught in an all-out slugfest between sorcerous armies, elemental constructs, and juggernaut war machines. As their well-laid plans spiral into a free-for-all firefight through the heart of the perilous refinery, Davrick wonders at the wisdom of their dubious scheme. And was it really such a good idea to let a sell-spell sorcerer borrow the legendary Dragon Stone of Ethrasaur?
Mercenary Siege is the second novella of the six-part Siege Chronicles.
