From the back of the book:
"'I can provide you no solace from the obscenity that even now seeks to befoul your path along the spirit plane. Damnation or salvation, death or redemption, your fate awaits...'
You are trapped in the deepest darkness, far from the sunlit realm, but all is not yet lost. You may still find a way to free yourself from the web of Orb's greatest evil -- the Black Widow -- and rescue your friend Glaivas despite the malice of the countless deadly denizens of the Rift. To succeed in your journey back to the surface you will have to overcome the wrath of the gods of evil, to pass beyond even the spirit realm itself into legend, redeeming all that you have lost to the rotten heart of Orb. But what great evil has taken root in your home city whilst you have been away, bringing it to the very brink of disaster?
