Kade Hollander is a worthless whoremongering drunk wandering medieval England at the turn of the twelfth century. When a mysterious sentient sword appears at the end of a rainbow and tells Kade he only has days to live, his simple life of solitude becomes a desperate struggle for survival. With the aid of a talking toad, a sultry witch, and the magic sword, Kade must battle his way to the land of the dead to find the only hope of restoring his health. Caught between a haunted past, rekindling lost love, and remaining sober long enough to find a cure, Kade's life truly begins when it's about to end.
