Thulsa Doom rises from the hellish depths to smash Sonja’s palace. Normally Sonja would be up to the challenge, but in her weakened state she’ll be lucky just to escape with all her limbs attached. Either way, Doom owes a heavy debt to his god Set for his new-found power. Set didn’t revive Thulsa out of charity; it needs the undead sorcerer to carry out a horrific rite that can only be performed once every thousand years. The results of this dark ritual? Only Set knows the full truth.
