Something has awakened in the north, something old, something evil. One by one our friends, both human and Elf, go north seeking the source of a nameless fear. One by one they disappear.
Silver the Hunter and Ketdryn join forces with the Wolf Clan to investigate, but all does not go as planned. Fate has dealt a bad hand, and the winters of the north are unrelenting and unforgiving.
The allies are scattered and outnumbered, and it gets worse as the snows of winter deepen. As an enemy older than time reawakens, the Wolf Clan has to find a new way to survive, and a new way to fight a very old opponent. Those who weave the fates of men and Elves weave an intricate pattern indeed, and only they can see what truly lies ahead.
