Summary:

Civil war is ravaging Kurald Galain. Urusander's Legion prepares to march on the city of Kharkanas. The rebels' only opposition lies scattered and weakened-bereft of a leader since Anomander's departure in search of his estranged brother. The remaining brother, Silchas Ruin, rules in his stead. He seeks to gather the Highborn families to him and resurrect the Hust Legion, but he is fast running out of time.



The officers and leaders of Urusander's Legion want the Consort, Draconus, cast aside and their commander to marry Mother Dark, the Living Goddess. But a sorcerous power has claimed those opposing Mother Dark: the Cult of Light rises in answer to Mother Dark and her Children.



Far to the west, an army has gathered commanded by a Jaghut driven mad with grief. Hood's call has been heard, and the long-abandoned city of Omtose Phellack is now home to a rabble of new arrivals: Dog-Runners from the south and Jheck warriors. From the Western Sea strange ships have grounded upon the harsh shore bearing blueskinned strangers to offer Hood their swords. And from mountain fastnesses and isolated valleys of the North, Toblakai arrive to pledge themselves to Hood's war. Soon, weapons will be drawn, with Death itself the enemy.



Beneath the chaos of such events magic now bleeds into the world. Unconstrained, mysterious, and savage, the power that is the lifeblood of the Azathanai, K'rul, runs loose and wild-entities both new and ancient are gathering...eager to feed. Understanding at last what his gift of blood has unleashed, a weakened K'rul sets out to bring order to this newborn sorcery and in the name of order seeks its greatest avowed enemy....
