Adam Gray is dead...
...so when he awakens in the quiet dark of his small apartment, the young man's sanity seems far from certain. For the past six months, he's battled the undead, befriended giants, fallen in love, and struggled against an ultimate evil. Just a dream? Or has he fallen into complete madness?
Maybe he should ask the wizard passed out on his couch.
Thus begins Adam's desperate struggle to return to Tantris; a magical land that's undergone a terrible transformation. Friends and loved ones are all dead; slain at the command of the Dark Mage. Armies of Unsouled roam the land, slaughtering and devouring the scattered few who dare to fight back.
Burdened by a terrible guilt, Adam must undo the death and devastation wrought by the Dark Mage. With the might he wielded before now turned against him, Adam searches for another way to save those most precious to him.
The future of Tantris lies in its past and on Adam's pursuit of a mythical token of power: the Talisman of Time.
