Even in death, Skilgannon the Damned’s name lives on. Now, as an ancient evil threatens to flood the Drenai heartlands in a tide of blood, he returns…
A thousand years after they fell in battle, two heroes – Druss and Skilgannon – are revered throughout the war-torn lands of the Drenai, where men and women live in abject fear of the dark sorceress known as the Eternal…
But what if one such hero could be called back from the void? An ancient prophecy foretold that Skilgannon would return in his people’s darkest hour. To most, this was a foolish hope. But not so to Landis Kan. Having found Skilgannon’s ancient tomb, he gathers up the bones and peforms the mystic ritual.
But the reborn hero is an enigma: a young man whose warrior skills are blunted and whose memories are fragmented. He is marooned in a world as strange to him as a dream, remote from all he knew and loved. Or nearly all – for Landis Kan has also experimented upon other bone fragments found in the hero’s tomb resulting in a surly giant who possesses astounding strength but no memories. To Kan, he is a dangerous failure. To Skilgannon, this giant represents their last hope.
As ageless evil threatens to drown the Drenai lands in blood, two legendary heroes will once again lead the way to freedom.
