A man known only as the Necromancer and his demonic familiar named "Self" wander the spectral highways of the countryside, incurring the wrath of both heaven and hell and facing the curses of the damned. But it's a figure from his past that may drive the Necromancer into a hell even he cannot escape. Jebediah DeLancre, the leader of the Necromancer's old coven, has created a new coven, an evil band determined to use the black arts for their own hideous ends. The Necromancer is forced to return to his home, a place haunted by memories, where years earlier his original coven was destroyed, and where Danielle, the only love of his life, met an awful death. Together with Self, the Necromancer must battle not only his former master, but the members of the new coven and the jealous ghosts of his old one…all the while taunted by the possibility that Danielle may return from the dead.
