In the blighted lands of Cryx, death is the inevitable price of power.
The fearsome sorcerer and pirate Darragh Wrathe has long terrorized the oceans of western Immoren in the name of Toruk the Dragonfather, but the great dragon’s blessings are a double-edged sword, and the blighted energies Wrathe calls forth to destroy his enemies are slowly consuming him. Now with death an ever-present shadow at his side, Darragh Wrathe makes a pilgrimage to the black isle of Skell at the heart of the Nightmare Empire. There he will present himself to the enigmatic necrotechs of Cryx and seek to replace his failing body with the dark science of necromechanika. But immortality comes with a steep price, and Darragh Wrathe must barter more than his flesh to prove himself a worthy vessel of Toruk’s power.
