The orphan Nathaniel Pryce isn't an orphan after all.His father is very much alive.
There's just one problem - his father wants him dead.
Samuel Pryce is the priest of a nearly extinct religion, and has dedicated his life to two goals - to see the old gods reborn, and to bring his beloved wife Elizabeth back from the dead. Pryce almost succeeds before being temporarily thwarted by a self-taught Choctaw shaman fighting to protect the native spirit realm, John Miko.
Now Nathaniel and John must risk a dark and dangerous journey through the spirit underworld to find the one means of defeating Samuel Pryce. All John has to do is lead an army of ghosts against an army of gods. All Nathaniel has to do is beat Samuel Pryce on Pryce's own terms - without becoming something much, much worse.
