As Samara heals himself, he helps transform the lives of those who rescued him, but in doing so attracts the attention of a warlord who would rule this benighted land.  Now this butcher and his gunmen threaten the very existence of the villagers themselves –  and the one, slim chance Samara has of finding his way home.

And all the while, in the darkness above, waits the simmering fury that lies at the heart of Tartarus…”
