Title: Weeds Among Stone
Blurb: (assuming that the blurb was written by a mid-70's B-movie trailer writer)
Maran the dwarf leaves her farming life to return to her honorable family trade as cook. When she arrives in Jura City, she is drawn into a sordid tale of sects, drugs, and heavy metal. She’s the heroine on heroin, who kisses kings, chats with gods, and quakes before poets. She attacks her problems with a butcher knife in one hand and a coffee cup in the other, and both are good to the last drop. It’s a non-stop, action-adventure where a simple cook serves villains heaping portions of gourmet humble pie.
