|Plot Summary of Necropolis|
When prison guard Conyr first sees Dru, the young man
is about to be beaten to death for some unknown crime,
but imprisoned councilman Gilas has other plans, and
calls in a favour. In no time at all, Conyr finds his
dwelling overrun by an invalid, the daughter of the
woman he adores, and a very strange dog called Echo.
As Dru returns to health, it soon becomes clear that
there is more afoot, and that the fate of a city may
well rest upon his shoulders. The answers seem to lie
in the mysterious Necropolis, a city of the dead that
lies somewhere beneath the city of the living.
