In a world where Good has been subdued and Evil reigns, old powers stir... Deadforce rules in a decaying land, and Magick has grown weak. Atop his fortress of ice, the High Overlord sits secure on the decadent, agony-powered throne of his empire. Only in dreams does a thread of dragonforce live on. Across the continent, a captive laborer Remembers hope and begins to dream. Yet to find the absent dragons and restore the Balance, this slave must risk everything to escape, enduring pain, humiliation, and haunting visions of the past. But will the price become too high - and the scars too deep - before finding the way out?
