In the ancient land of Fyrdun, where men gain fame and rewn through deeds rather than with words, there lived a young man named Gerald, in a small fishing village named Swbourne. On the night of the Festival of the Harvest, the village is beset by an invasion of foul men from beyond the borders. Running to find his beloved Laurena, he encounters a man who will change the course of his life. This man, a Venator, one of the storied Undead Hunters of Old, reveals to Gerald the true tale of his birth and sets him upon a different path than any he might have imagined for himself. And in time, Gerald would come to kw that both evil men and the Undead alike make tireless foes.
