Drake--a loner toughened by exposure, hardship, and a life of fighting the scourge that destroyed his family as a boy--is swept up into the midst of a new crusade. He must join the High Guard as they try to rid the lands of the Legion of the Fallen. With swords and sorcery, Drake must fight his way through five distinct realms. From the spires of the Citadel to the murky depths of Duskwood, Drake runs, jumps, ducks, fights, and casts spells as he becomes ever more powerful. He must eventually challenge the leader of the dead army himself.
