The saga continues as Erik makes his way from the ruins of the underground city of Dis and ventures north to the Devilwood forests and the former Princedom of his father. The mysterious Followers of Eosphorus have stepped from their shadows, Artemus, Moonsail, and Ishton make a new friend, and real magic reappears in the lands of Lucardia.
