Nikon & Vo take another job from Captain Stratton as a follow up to the rogue mage who sabotaged the Horizon shipment on the docks. Capt. Stratton wants reconnaissance on the Anasazi who suspects to be behind the attack. He sends Nikon & Vo out to the desert cult with a Horizon specialist named Steve.
Nikon & Vo run into Barghest, mysterious men in the rocks, and earth sentinels, but ultimately find the leader of the Anasazi cult.
