A standalone Songs for the Dead Story: Bethany—the necromancer with a heart of gold—and Elissar—her violent companion are following a map that makes no sense, to a place that might not exist, with the help of a wizard who might be cursed.

FRIENDS. MAGIC. SWORDS. DEATH. AND LIFE (AGAIN).

A new standalone Songs for the Dead story: Bethany, the necromancer with a heart of gold, and Elissar, her prone-to-brawling companion, are off to find the Covenant—a sanctuary for Bethany’s otherwise reviled magic. Unfortunately, their map makes no sense. Seeking the help of a young wizard named Jonas, whose knowledge may unravel the map’s secrets, Bethany and Elissar discover a mysterious illness plaguing The Foggard temple, home to the ancient order of mages. Double-unfortunately, Bethany and Elissar are not on the best of terms following the recent and violent encounter at Boulder’s Envy.

Collects the complete four issue series.
