Summary

Neil Gaiman Presents: the final book in Fritz Leiber's classic sword-and-sorcery series. In The Knight and Knave of Swords, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser's journeys have taken them from one side of Nehwon to the other, facing life-risking peril at every turn. Now, in a set of stories that feature the adventurers on their own and together, they will face some of their most challenging obstacles. Against assassins, angry gods, and even Death himself, the duo must battle for their very lives.
The late Fritz Leiber's tales of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser launched the sword-and-sorcery genre, and were the inspiration for the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by Neil Gaiman.

"Glowing imagination melds with gorgeous language to make this one of Leiber's very best...which is a better best than this poor world usually has to offer." (Harlan Ellison)

A fitting end to a great series.

Well done all around. The range of Johnathan Davis is extraordinary. I highly recommend the whole series.

Ugh, it hurts.

I have trying so hard to finish this book. After my glowing praise of the first books in the series, some part of me has a driving need to complete the set. However, it is very, very difficult.

I enjoyed the other books, even when they dragged in places. This last installment dragged from the start, and hasn't let up yet. Do yourself a favor, stop at the 6th book.
