Ariel and Nick Walker face their deepest fears and their greatest challenge as they search for the Master Demon who holds the key to the future of mankind. Slay him and the world goes free; fail, and it falls irrevocably into violence and chaos.
Guided by a wisdom master, the assault party, including many friends they met in previous episodes, must traverse the high Steps of Death, and a labyrinth of shifting gorges and defeat flesh-eating demons. Nick struggles with the scars of his past and faces the green-eyed head of the Cogin clan, they still must cross the scree slope, where the bones of Ariel’s father lie, defeat vicious elementals, and find their way through the ice caves beneath the summit of the Diamond Peak where the Master Demon awaits.
The journey is extraordinary, the enemies are deadly and the ending is mind-blowing.
