Eda is a flight-risk mercenary with a bad track record. Living on half-payments from uncompleted jobs, she hopes that her luck will change. And it does. When Eda meets Gandalf, he tells her that being reluctant to kill - valuing life - is not a weakness. And seeing Eda's true colors beneath her tough and careless facade, he hires her to protect his favorite Hobbit as Bilbo takes an unexpected holiday. But even that doesn't quite go according to plan... *cover art created by @elvenmystery.* **All credit goes to J.R.R. Tolkien for everything except the character(s) I created.** Rated PG-13 for action violence, intense battle sequences, and mild suggestive reference.
