Scull, Luke  
Grim Company #2: Sword of the North
In Dorminia, anyone perceived as a threat has been imprisoned, leaving the White Lady's rule unchallenged. But if Eremul the Halfmage cannot convince the White Lady of the existence of the immortal race known as the Fade, all of humanity will be in danger. Brodar Kayne and Jerek the Wolf continue their odyssey to the High Fangs, only to find themselves caught in a war between a demon horde and their enemy the Shaman. And in Thelassa, Sasha must overcome demons of her own. Because the Fade are coming.
