An escaping youth discovers another captive named Rune. Together, she and Arien travel in search of her wayward brother. He has departed from the path of his people as a caretaker of the dead and has learned how to control them. But controling him is another. Though it is difficult, Rune has been given the task of stopping him – through any means necessary. It sounds easy enough, but the world is in complete chaos from his actions. As Rune fights through the ranks, the real world seems more fantastic than wild dreams.
