The Decoy
A Wars of Light and Shadow short story

Falion sen Ardhai, town born to a glass artisan and a clanbred woman, maintains his uneasy, dual heritage as a free wilds courier when a message of sensitive urgency sends him to Avenor, and a test of courage beyond his imagining.

Available as an e-book exclusively in the Maitz and Wurtz Studio Shop. This short story is best appreciated after completing Curse of the Mistwraith.
