Troy marked it as to-read Jun 01, I sympathize with the fact that the cover can make it more difficult to play out Alexia’s role in the early part of the adventure, but she was featured on all three of the original books of the series as well and given her prominence I’m not sure if we could have easily persuaded Matt to feature someone else there.

In the end Corvis is saved and Vinter retreats.

The PCs need to do research, while getting occasionally attacked by members of the Inquisition, to find the hidden temple first. Successful in that, the undead army enters and an epic battle ensues against Vinter’s forces.

Rick marked it as to-read Kingdkms 18, The PCs are able to stop Alexia’s plans to sack the city but that’s one part one.

I think given the scope of the adventure and how quickly it becomes apparent that something is going on with Alexia, this really isn’t that large of an obstacle.

BookDB marked it as to-read Nov 02, If it were any other setting you could make the argument that “necromancy doesn’t necessarily mean evil” but in the Iron Kingdoms, necromancy is one of the worst, unholiest things there is.
