the smuggler’s bible


Fergus says horses won’t go near the giant. Neither will most people. But when Marhaus signed up for adventure, he promised to take the good with the bad. And if we’re being honest, he hasn’t seen much worse than the 14-foot monstrosity sitting under the tree picking a stable boy out of its teeth with the kid’s own bones.

“So do I have to pick a fight or what?” Marhaus says before the giant notices him and reaches for its club. The first hit knocks his shield into two pieces, so Marhaus ditches the footwork and swings for the fences.
