It's the penultimate chapter of the "Darkdust" saga, by Steve Perrin and Terry Pallot, featuring Max Krueger's murderous showdown with Flare! This time, thanks to the machinations of the night-goddess Nyx, the perfect assassin is armed with all the power he'll need to take our heroine out, once and for all. How can even a shining goddess of the light hope to stand alone against the combined hatred of all the dark legions of Hell? The answer is: She can't.
