Ahriman, exiled sorcerer lord of the Thousand Sons, has many servants who do his bidding. Each has a tale to tell, but few as compelling as that of Ctesias the twice-dead, summoner of daemons. From an encounter with the mysterious Dead Oracle to the perils of the Hounds and Wrath and navigating the Gates of Ruin, Ctesias is a vital link in Ahriman’s grand plan. This is Ctesias’ tale, in his own words, of his trials and the great and terrible deeds he has performed in his master’s name. This is the chronicle of his path to damnation as he leads Ahriman to his exodus from the Eye of Terror.

Ctesias, a name you're sure to recognise from the Ahriman trilogy, takes centre stage and is the hero of his own story in this collection of tales. And that might just make Ahriman the villain. See the arch-sorcerer's manipulations through new eyes and experience some of the horrors he inflicts on his followers. The book also contains the first Black Library appearance of a classic character: Be'lakor, the first daemon prince of Chaos.
