LES DIEUX MORTS SE LÈVENT.

Lik-Rifa, le dieu dragon de la légende, a été libéré de sa prison éternelle. Elle prépare une nouvelle ère de sang et de conquête.

Alors qu’Orka poursuit la chasse à son fils disparu, les Bloodsworns se dirigent vers le sud dans une course désespérée pour sauver l’un des leurs – et Varg fait les premiers pas sur le chemin de la vengeance.

Elvar a juré d’accomplir son serment de sang et de sauver un prisonnier des griffes de Lik-Rifa et de ses disciples dragon-nés, mais elle doit d’abord persuader les Battle-Grim de la suivre. Cependant, même la puissance des Bloodsworns et des Battle-Grim ne peut s’opposer à un dieu dragon.

Leur seul espoir réside dans les écrits fous d’un dieu enchaîné. Un livre de magie interdite ayant le pouvoir de ressusciter le dieu loup Ulfrir… et de déclencher une bataille qui ébranlera les fondations de la terre.

THE DEAD GODS ARE RISING.

Lik-Rifa, the dragon god of legend, has been freed from her eternal prison. Now she plots a new age of blood and conquest.

As Orka continues the hunt for her missing son, the Bloodsworn sweep south in a desperate race to save one of their own–and Varg takes the first steps on the path of vengeance.

Elvar has sworn to fulfil her blood oath and rescue a prisoner from the clutches of Lik-Rifa and her dragonborn followers, but first she must persuade the Battle-Grim to follow her. Yet even the might of the Bloodsworn and Battle-Grim cannot stand alone against a dragon god.

Their only hope lies within the mad writings of a chained god. A book of forbidden magic with the power to raise the wolf god Ulfrir from the dead…and bring about a battle that will shake the foundations of the earth.
