Under the expanding reach of Iron King, Iz-Dale is a haven amidst the horrors-ridden Dead Lands, where Ilanna has fashioned a living in the realm for herself with her mother Ilaria.
Among friends, her mentor Captain Harlan Farrell of the Iron Guard, and an ally in the sorceress Nadelle, life is comfortable, considering.
But, when Cruthik the Elder-an incredible enemy out of Nadelle's past-reemerges to rule and extend the fabled Lands, Ilanna will soon leave the City after an untimely Orc invasion to find her comrade, previously departed to investigate a recent slew of murders.
Ilanna will see the rivaling factions and rogue killers that walk the Lands, realizing her long-contained secret, especially hidden from the King.
For beyond the relative safety of her home there rages a Demon, and a vengeful Storm-Giant. And there are others yet with their own pursuits, who fight to resist the spreading danger.
But who is the deeper-and Undead-threat lying in wait, and why is this being content to do so?
