Bestselling Warhammer author Dan Abnett tells the story of an ancient and elite order of warriors, the Wield, the most feared and respected soldiers of their world. He charts their attempts to understand the ancient myths of "an Old Enemy" that led to their foundation, and the war they must fight when they inadvertently reawaken a dark and inhumanly terrible adversary...The Wield is both the name of a military culture and the part of the country they inhabit. The Wield faces a larger continent from which many threats have come over the years. It is a buffer state, a bastion. Though independent, the folk of the Wield owe fealty to the civilized states and fiefdoms that exist to the north of them. They are the watchmen at the gates, holding and defending the island nation's historical flashpoint of invasion and threat. According to legend, the Wield was forged centuries before to defend the land against a monstrous evil that came from the larger continent. This ancient evil was so mythically awful, so supernatural, that no one is allowed to know (or remember) much about it. But now a new recruit to the Wield is about to unwittingly release this ancient evil back into the world.
