From the back of the book
The Near Now. While the Possibility Wars continue to spread, a twisted edeinos bent on revenge hatches a plot that could change the face of the Living Land forever. Calling upon the power of a dark god, he threatens the life of Baruk Kaah and the very future of the realm.
Bizarre edeinos clad in bone armor and wielding swords have been raiding resistance communities throughout Illinois. Backed by undead Living Land creatures, these war parties have kidnapped a small group of humans and carried them to Takta Ker.
Their goal is a dark and bloody one: having resurrected the edeinos god of Death, they plan to use its power to slay Baruk Kaah and make their leader the new High Lord. The Storm Knights must survive a nightmarish trek through Death's gauntlet and an explosive battle in a Takta Ker temple if they wish to save the humans and stop the creation of a far more deadly Living Land.
