Book II of  Sword of Shadows.  The Long Night has begun and the Endlords are stirring in their eternal prison.  Now should be the time when city men and clansmen come together to fight the dark forces, yet the clans feud among themselves and the Mountain Cities plan invasion. Only the Sull are preparing for war against the Endlords, but they are an ancient race and their numbers are declining.  They fear this fight may be their last.  Outcast clansman Raif Sevrance must search for Ash March, their most valued and sacred warrior.  To find her he must journey through the nightmare realm of the Want, wherein hides the Fortress of Grey ice.
