The shortest time spent in the vile pits of the wretched Abyss can drive the strongest man to desperation. And even the hearty and determined barbarian Wulfgar feels the sting of that trauma, and seeks solace at the bottom of a bottle.
Plunged into a life of self-imposed exile, Wulfgar leaves his friends – his whole life – behind on a journey into the black depths of his own soul. Will the new friends he finds along the way give him strength that even Drizzt, Catti-brie, Bruenor, and Regis could not? Or will they only drag him deeper into a dockside world of violence and corruption?
