The most dangerous form of magic on Touched - a world where those born with magic wield political power - is necromancy, the art of drawing magical power from the act of murder. It has long been banned and rightfully so, yet the ambitious and power-hungry Duke Herod - intent on placing his posterior upon the Golden Throne - has resurrected the art, planning to use it to destroy the Royal Family and take the Throne for himself.

On the eve of their wedding, Prince Eric and Mistress Hind are forced to flee the Palace as Herod's forces launch a coup against the Emperor. As they make their way to the only safety left in a world touched by necromancy and darkest magic, they are pursued by Herod's men, while behind them Herod sinks further into madness. If the necromancer cannot be stopped, the entire world is in terrible danger...

... And may be destroyed.
