Send a monster to kill a monster... Murderer, betrayer, warrior beyond compare... Yet by the cruel standards of the dark elves, Malus Darkblade still has a lot to prove.

The second instalment in the Darkblade series, Bloodstorm delves further into the twisted psyche of the cruel and malicious Malus Darkblade. The ultimate antihero returns in the second episode of the Darkblade saga.
