Gabriel is left for dead. The Horsemen have spread their corruption, targeting the Churchâ€™s highest order and forcing the Patriarchs to fracture.
As Gabrielâ€™s life hangs in the balance, Nate and his allies must scramble to awaken him before the Church falls. An alliance with the Spheresâ€”hidden sanctuaries of ores usersâ€”provides a single hope. To destroy the corruption, they must travel into the dark zonesâ€”areas abandoned by the civilized worldâ€”and hunt down the source. In the dark zone, they come face to face with a warped reality, ruled by violence and savagery. With the world on the brink of war, Gabriel is forced to become what he never wanted to be.
