Still reeling from her confrontation with the mysterious Gaket, Nysta must summon all her strength to continue her pursuit of the Bloody Nine. Accompanied by the enigmatic warlock, Chukshene, she quickly finds herself battling even more of the insane creatures which haunt the Deadlands.
There are many chains in the Deadlands. But only one is strong enough to pull her toward that final bloody confrontation where she will face Raste in a final and violent duel at Grimwood Creek.
