Enter the World of Zaylyn. This is a world filled with strange creatures, magic, and mystery. This is the continued story, in the quest for the Sword of Anthrowst.
Discovering that the sword had been broken into three pieces and hidden away in three separate locations, the group continues on what seems like a hopeless quest. Through the help of the giant spiders, a message was relayed to Lorenta that Dranngore is seeking revenge on the wizard's guild for denying him membership and that it would be several days before the Killnarin made their next move.
After Asdella brutally takes revenge on a man from her past, the group must flee Vackiindmire and have decided to make their way to the town of Shirkint. They desperately hope that they will be able to discover more information about the sword there.
Vexcindor, the carriage driver, is to take them through the forest to Shirkint, but will they run into trouble? They were warned about the increasing raids by the bandits within the forest.
Are the rumors true about a thieves guild being located at Shirkint?
It seems that The Black Shadow has been guiding them along from the beginning. Does he have some sinister plan for the group?
He eventually asks them to perform a task for him, but what are his true motives for helping them as he has?
Will he eventually turn on them as Asdella fears? Does Asdella know more about The Black Shadow than she is letting on?
His hold over the hunger is quickly diminishing the more he resists. Will he be able to keep himself from killing? Will The Black Shadow be able to stop himself from attacking and feeding from one of the group?
