Having two of his fingers cut off at an early age hadn't done much to make Xandrith an agreeable fellow. Besides marking him as a pariah and having him shunned by even his own family, it had also hurt. A lot. Being stripped of a few of his fingers and cast out of the Order of Mages had left him bitter and angry, but if there was any consolation to be had it was that he was doing rather well in his new line of work.

The world is falling into chaos. The trolls, humanities long cursed brothers, are rising from the holes they were driven into, and a vile plague is decimating the human population. Xandrith, the unlikely but determined hero, has gone missing, and hope is dwindling day by day. Meanwhile, Haley, Xandrith’s apprentice, is growing frustrated at her mentor’s continued absence. She fears the worst, but none of her companions seem willing to do anything.
The world of men is crashing to an end. Xandrith has been stricken down, his body and mind corrupted in his attempt to gather aid for his world - and his friends have been lost, cast to the winds amidst the turmoil. What hope remains when all the land is crawling with darkness, and the few remaining survivors have been driven deep into the metallic clutches of man's last standing fortress?
