Malfus’s past has finally caught up with him. He’s a renegade, an outlaw, a necromancer. Now... he’s a prisoner. He's been captured by Inquisitor Deza to stand trial for his crimes.
They're ambushed and forced to take refuge at a military fort under siege by monsters.

The only option remaining is to free Malfus to raise an army of the dead.

Malfus is a rogue necromancer with nothing to his name except his spellbook.
Forced to leave his old life behind, he finds himself starving and alone in a strange land.
His luck turns a corner when he stumbles across a body-strewn battlefield—but buzzards and crows aren’t the only creatures interested in his find.
As night falls and the mists grow, will his necromancy be enough to face what waits for him in the dark?
This is a prequel short story, introducing the grimdark fantasy novel Malfus: Necromancer Unchained. You can enjoy this story by itself; it is not necessary reading for the novel.
