Eric Banyon has settled into the New York whirl nicely: he's doing well at Juilliard, he's made a lot of new friends, he's defeated a lord of the Unseleighe Sidhe...

Aerune mac Audelaine, whose belovbed was killed by mortal men, was determined to destroy the humand race until Eric, with a little help from his new friends the Guardians, thwarted Aerune's plans and exposed the chemists whose designer poison turned ordinary humans into zombie Mages.

He's also got Jeanette Campbell, former Threshold Black Ops, and the science behind the murder.
