Some knights pledge their whole lives to sacred duty. Sir Champaign can’t even fake his way through the first crusade. Exiled by his fellow Crusaders and left to rot at the bottom of a desert pit, he has the rest of his wretched Arabian nights to repent of the heist he didn’t commit—as well as the heists he did. He has but one desperate plan to reverse his fortune. All he needs now is a crew.
Ali Baba had forty thieves. Champaign needs only nine. A ragtag band of experts from all corners of the Arabian underworld—sword swallowers and snake charmers, magic carpet surfers and magic lamp vendors. He’d even put a genie on the team, if they’d let him. But nobody’s that crazy. Then again, their target is the one treasure Ali Baba himself wouldn’t dare touch. It’s guarded by a nightmare more terrifying than any dreamt in 1001 Arabian nights: an immortal sand beast known as the Decalogue Dragon. It lives on the desert’s rooftop, in a nest made for dragon wings, in a lair scarred by dragon claws and laced with poisonous dragon blood.
But there’s more than just a dragon hoard in that desert cave. And with the help of a fellow knight errant and the funding of a rogue Arabian prince, Champaign thinks he just might have the blueprint to stealing it. Now every vulture in Arabia is circling, from mute assassins to greedy Knights Templar. He’ll have to be more clever than Aladdin, more cunning than Ali Baba, and more daring than Sinbad to pull off the heist of the century. Maybe give Scheherazade something to write about for the next 1001 Arabian Nights. Only the dragon stands in his way. And it will take more than three wishes to steal the treasure, escape with his life, and clear his name.
The Lindsay Brothers were born once upon a time in a far away land called the 1970's. It was a short time after this that the eighties happened. The brothers were incredibly influenced and deeply inspired by that turn of events. Then one day they wrote a book and the rest as they say, is history. I mean literally. The book is set in the past.
Aside from that, they have basically lived your everyday, normal kind of life, complete with books, pizza, and the occasional profound philosophical insight.
