In the brutal, mystical realm of Underland, the secrets of the past may hold the key to saving all existence—or finally condemning it to eternal darkness.
Now under the tutelage of a pair of dark lords, Valdemar Verney and his partner and bodyguard, Lady Reynard, have grown greatly in skill and power—he in sorcery and summoning, and she in blood and bone swordsmanship. Having faced the knowledge of his dark legacy, Valdemar is still struggling to find his way as well as solve the pan-dimensional mystery that seems to be guiding his destiny.
When the Dark Lord Och decides to make a punitive strike against the demented, gore-drenched Derros, both Valdemar and Reynard are put to the test in mind, body, and soul against an enemy far more depraved than any they have faced before: Otto Blutgang, the Derros King, capturer of minds.
But even Blutgang has his uses for the summoner. He commands Valdemar to aid him in his ultimate play for power: opening portals from Underland to countless realities where he can rule above any gods. And if Valdemar refuses, Reynard will be the one to pay the price, forever and beyond . . .
