The victory over the Soultaker fractured the Knights Eternal.
Shade has broken his vows, abandoning his brothers to trek over the northern mountains in search of a god. Instead, he finds Darkenwood, a sprawling hamlet in an isolated valley, populated with strange creatures trapped in an endless cycle of oppression. His desire to free them from their shackles sends him on another journey, one that will test his faith in humanity.
Meanwhile, Meesh is stuck trying to acclimate the strange new Abednego to the violent world of the Wasteland. It’s a task he isn’t prepared to do on his own. To make matters worse, a new riddle from Old Crone tells him that they have to find Shade… and kill him.
Three brothers on a collision course with fate. But is man’s fate shaped by outside forces, or their own free will? That’s the question they need to answer, even if the truth shatters the very foundation of their existence.
