More terrible than the evil itself

The great wars of Amarillia are finished, some say, the bone demon drawn to that magical land had been banished for ever. Yet the remnants of its armies maraud impoverished lands with few strong enough to stop them while, in the ruins of Castle Argent, an evil still more dangerous and dire than the demon itself is forming. It is now ready to take into its taloned hands what is left of the beauties and glories of Amarillia.

Darkthrone is the second tale in the epic Zagor Chronicles series, revealing the full horror of the necromancer's plans to lay waste to all that is good and true in a land of fable, majesty and deep magic.[1]
