LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
Guy Haley relates a haunting elegy showing the universality of suffering and the power of death and the promise of escaping its embrace.
Lured into the cursed city of Shadespire by the promise of the secret of cheating death, the aelf wanderer Prince Maesa seeks the Katophrane Thanaton. Surrounded by the spirits of the dead who cannot die, trapped in the last moments before the city’s destruction, Maesa nears his goal… but just why does a nigh-immortal aelf seek this power over death?
Written by Guy Haley
