What would you do if a stranger came to your door claiming to be your best friend. A best friend who you saw die ten years before?
The Unknown Warrior has spent the last ten years mourning the dead of the legendary mecernary band The Raven. Reluctant ruler of Balaia he has also presided over the gradual recovery of the land after the devastation of the Demonstorm.

But something is very wrong. There are rumours of the dead coming back to life. And the Elves are fleeing their homeland.
Something unutterably awful is happening. Something that has spread across all the dimensions. Something that threatens the very essence of the world, that has terrified the spirits of the dead. Brought them back to Balaia.
And amongst them The Raven. Desperate, and facing a fight that cannot be won.
