Dretlon Valley has been conquered, but now the city of Maldra has caught wind of a new threat stirring in southern Elabrium. Rumors tell of not just adepts being possessed by the dreaded wraiths, but essentia, the common people, are turning against one another. Behaviour that was once only characteristic of necrom is revealing itself in them too.
Has the world gone wrong? Have the laws of elemental magic broken, or is there something more? Jake and Louie have to not only find out, but face more danger than ever to get to the bottom of it. All the while they struggle to learn who among their friends have turned... and if they can bring them back.
