This precipitates an avalanche of unexpected outcomes, including the emergence of Kez Maefele, one of the few remaining generals of the Ku Warrior race-the only race to ever seriously threaten Guardship hegemony. Kez Maefele and a motley group of aliens, biological constructs, an scheming aristocrats find themselves at the center of the conflict.

Sok év telt már el azóta, hogy a Fekete Sereg, a hírhedt, szánalmat nem ismerő zsoldoskompánia feladta becsületét, hogy a jó ügyért harcolhasson. Kiléptek az Úrnő szolgálatából, és élére álltak annak a felkelésnek, melyet korábban oly sokszor fojtottak vérbe. Bár vezetőjük maga a Fehér Rózsa - a próféciák szerint az egyetlen ember, aki képes lehet legyőzni a boszorkányt -, az Úrnő seregének többszörös túlereje ellen semmi esélyük. Évek óta rejtőzködnek a Félelem Földjén ebben a borzalmakkal teli sivatagban, ahová még ellenségeik sem mernek belépni, ám végül kétségbeesett lépésre szánják el magukat: ellentámadásra indulnak. Egy a múltból felbukkanó árny azonban olyan hírekkel szolgál, amelyek ha igazak, megeshet, hogy az Úrnő és a Fehér Rózsa végső küzdelmébe még valaki bele fog szólni: maga a megtestesült gonosz, a Dominátor...
