A deadly betrayal triggers an inexorable avalanche of events vaulting Pyge the Black back home to the loving clutches of his immediate family, twenty years after he went to insane lengths to make them think he was dead. Forced to re-assume his true name and the curse of immobility that accompanied his old identity, Pyge has to face a family who's actions left him crippled, in mind, and body, and unravel the secret that kept him hidden from them for 20 years. Pyge has a god on his side, unfortunately his family does as well and their divine backup is much bigger than his. But Pyge isn't a young lad being taken apart on a torturer's table anymore. He has his guns; his war hammer; the demonic power he sacrificed dearly for; and his only friend and most precious possession: The Obsidian Horse.
