Rufino Endicott's attempt to reclaim a part of his lost life hasn't gone well thus far. Betrayed and left for dead by the druid-sorceress, Kiralyn Frostwhisper, the little vampire now finds himself enslaved by the dark magic of an unstable necromancer. To make matters worse, his captor has raised an entire army of zombies for the purpose of assaulting the nearby township of Tundora, home of twenty thousand innocent people.
