When King Douglas made Lewis Deathstalker his Champion, he earned the enmity of Paragon Finn who drove a wedge between the Emperor and his Champion. Eventually Lewis fled for his life and Finn became Emperor while Douglas hid in the Rookery, the worst part of the city. The former ruler is building up a rebel force to take Finn down.

Meanwhile Lewis is on Haden with his girlfriend and two other allies. They enter the Madness Maze seeking to bring back to life legendary Owen Deathstalker, dead for over two centuries. Owen returns but not to fight Finn but to stop The Terror which is destroying worlds. The Terror is Owen's lover Hazel who went mad when Owen died and was transformed by the Madness Maze into a creature that destroys whole planetary systems. Owen, who is now able to defy the laws of space and time, follows her and hopes to bring her back to what she once was; Lewis gathers a space armada to deal with Finn in the air while Douglas deals with him on the land.
