It’s a mythic artifact that disappeared centuries ago, and now a shadowy group of [messenger]s are looking for it. No one knows what uncovering it might do, but these guys are willing to [battle] for it.

"I won’t say anything else. But believe me, if you like [beautiful] stories with [kitchen] and [passage], you have to read this one."
This was fun!
