Cover description

An ambitious drukhari archon[a] has ventured far from the Dark City of Commorragh in search of a mighty prize. Guided by a band of savage kroot warriors led by the inscrutable Dahyak Grekh, the archon and his cabal venture into the ruins of a kroot Warsphere, an immense city-ship that holds many secrets, including the location of a weapon that could bring pain to the entire galaxy: a Blackstone Fortress. But the drukhari are in Dahyak Grekh's domain now, and finding his goal may be a greater challenge than they anticipate…[1]


  • a: The description on the Black Library website refers to the archon as Zhain, but in the text of the story, the archon is an unnamed narrator, and Zhain is a member of his retinue.
