Something is going on in the city of Stormcock. Wizards are disappearing at an alarming rate. Something has risen in the necroplois outside the city walls, something ancient and evil. Fortunately, Emmerant the crystal gazer knows what terrors threaten the City of Birds, and perhaps the entire world. With the help of the rogue known as The Falcon, the unlikely duo must face angry barbarians, possessed hounds and the terror that is Nyoglatha. G. W. Thomas offers up an intriguing world of savants and sorcerers, mysterious and the fantastic.
