The doom of the Harrowing is upon Miss Fortune and her unlikely allies as Lucian faces his greatest nemesis. The host of the unliving is everywhere they turn, and the mortal heroes are forced to take shelter in the one place that stands as a beacon of life against the dead, the temple of the Bearded Lady. But even that may not be enough to stop the dead from taking their due and reaping their eternal souls.
The dead have their champions too, and the Shadow of War rides into Bilgewater with Thresh as Lucian, Olaf and Miss Fortune join forces to fight the monstrous specters of the Shadow Isles. But as the dead close in, there may be nowhere left to escape their wrath.
