The Sleepers of the Marsh

Synopsis:

Upon the shores of a mist-shrouded marsh, the sword-maiden Peregrine of the Aedring hill tribes and her city-born companion Blade are hunted by mercenaries led by the Metsheputi brothers Ahknetsos and Khetemene.  Legends speaks of an ancient city lost in the swamps, Khatner, one that holds a vast treasure.  The brothers will allow no others a chance to claim it.

Yet Khatner is well guarded by the mists and the marsh, trapping any that seek to breach them.  Those that venture in are never seen again, yet it is here that Peregrine and Blade must venture to escape from those that hunt them.
