In a fantasy world, a failed assassin and a nobleman's son have been separately imprisoned in the Harion High Security Compound.

With an ominous prophecy hanging overhead, will they even stay alive long enough to get out? More
In the fantasy wasteland world of Hairon stands the Hairon High Security Compound: a prison holding anyone from any government in a great alliance stretching across many realms and realities. Thieves, prisoners of war and even great evil wizards are held there indefinately and usually until death. To keep them in the cells are guarded by some of the finest fighters the alliance has to offer, backed up by mazelike halls and powerful enchantments... at least that's the elite guards for the rougher sections. Low security guards are more like glorified babysitters, while the elite guards are known far and wide for their skills. Either way, nobody gets out... Until now.
A failed assassin (Asus) and a nobleman's son (Ben Lott) both find themselves in separate parts of the compound. Quickly they learn that escape is near impossible but unknown to them a 400 year old prophecy may be about to change that. It says that only 12 people would survive the day and, as heroes and villains alike make their way to the HHSC for their own reasons, the day draws near. Asus can only bide his time and seek parole and Ben is left with little other choice but pain as they both hope for disaster to befall the compound. When it does, is a little magic and a lot of luck going to be enough to get them through the day?
This is the first book of three and those three are the introduction to a much longer series, so if you want a story that's going somewhere, you want this one.
