In the aftermath of the Drop Site Massacre of Isstvan V, a group of Salamanders survivors lay a trap for their foes, a group of unwary Night Lords on the hunt for easy prey. As they lure the Night Haunter's murderous sons into a trap, the battered survivors of the Drop Site Massacre contemplate their fate... and for some of them, it may come sooner than they think.
