Alone, bereft, and unable to forgive himself for the slaughter at the ravine, the Nameless Dwarf swears to do one last thing, even if it kills him:


With Nils Fargin, the son of a Jeridium guild lord as his guide, Nameless pursues the survivors among the dwarves, hoping to convince them that the curse of the Black Axe has been lifted from him and they are safe to return home.


The trail leads to the town of Malfen—a nest of cutthroats and the gateway to Cerreth, the Land of Nightmare, which would be suicide for the dwarves to enter.


Nameless and Nils join forces with a shapeshifting assassin and a sorcerer under the sway of a dubious magical grimoire for the hazardous journey into Cerreth.


It soon becomes apparent their new companions have agendas of their own.


With threats from within and horror on every side, Nameless knows that time is running out for his people. The only surprise is that they have lasted so long.


But new hope awaits him in a city beneath the waves—if he can first survive the unstoppable evil that destroyed the dwarf lords of old.

Hunt Or Be Hunted...


A powerful husk crosses the mountains, leaving a trail of the dead in its wake.


When efforts to track the killer end in disaster, the task falls to a man not expected to succeed: Jebediah Skayne, Lothario, hustler, hunter of demons.



They call them ‘husks’, the demons that cross the Farfall Mountains, leaving a trail of blood in their wake. 

No incursion goes unmet; otherwise the cancer would spread until the whole of Aethir was consumed by nightmares. 


That’s why the Maresmen were formed—trackers and warriors charged with holding back the tide. Each of them is different, uniquely suited to the task in hand, but one thing they hold in common: they are half-breeds, part human, part husk; and they are bound by an inviolable rule: 


Hunt the husks, or be hunted themselves. 


Jebediah Skayne has been hunting husks his entire adult life, but there’s something different about the trail leading to the fishing town of Portis on the shores of the Chalice Sea: no spoor, no footprints; nothing save the unmistakable feeling of wrongness. 


Finding a husk in Portis would be near impossible for someone who didn’t have the sixth sense, but the instant Jeb arrives, all trace of the incursion vanishes. Forced to rely on more mundane methods of investigation, he starts to uncover a town rife with corruption, where a man will kill you for looking at a woman the wrong way; a town that’s seen its share of incursions from the land of nightmares before. 


As events start to slip from his control, he realizes the husk he's come to kill is one step ahead of the game, and it holds a secret that will shake his world to the core.
