When Aqreen flees with their daughter and heir, seeking refuge in Reygar, the demon-lord’s anger knows no bounds. He wants to punish his wife, and sends his indomitable army of Deadwalkers after them. How do you defeat an army of the dead? For mortals, it is impossible. But Krushita is no mere mortal. To rule Arthaloka, Jarsun needs more than an heir. He needs allies. Prince Tyrak of Arrgodi is not only an ally, but Jarsun’s protégé and son-in-law. Born of an urrkh father, he believes in nothing but brute force and complete domination, willing even to sacrifice his own parents. With each passing day, as he succumbs to his thirst for power, he becomes more urrkh and less human. Now, only the Demon Slayer, Drishya, can deliver the people from his tyranny. But Drishya and Krushita are one. Siblings born of Stonefire. And they have a single aim: to kill Jarsun Kru’shan.
