Jason Cosmo is perfectly happy as a humble woodcutter in the village of Lower Hicksnittle -- until a foppish stranger tries to kill him, claiming there is a price on Jason's head big enough to put the world's deadliest bounty hunters on his trail. It seems Jason has become the most feared man in the Eleven Kingdoms -- which is news to him!
On the run from mercenaries, Demon Lords, and the full might of the sinister Dark Magic Society, Jason teams up with cynical wizard Mercury Boltblaster and winsome twins Sapphrina and Rubis to learn the truth. Driven by the Laws of Narrative, Jason's quest will take him from the bright realm of The Gods to the deadly depths of the Incredibly Dark Forest, and into a final confrontation with the forces of evil. Followed by an even more final confrontation. And then a sort of wrapping-up-loose-ends scene.
