For every curse, a death
Reymond joined the Crusades to free the Holy Land from the Saracens and win glory for himself. Instead, with six others, he found himself bound under a sorcerer’s curse: the Seven Sins personified.

“Are you up for it? I’ll pay you handsomely.”
“Let’s talk about how handsome this pay packet is. Is it leading Hollywood man handsome?” Lumpy asked.
They got down to talking about money.
