Years before the rise of the Blood Queen, the king's father fought a great battle to protect the witches and the Daughters of the Line. When another kingdom makes a bid to exterminate the witch class, King Tibor stands against this monstrous cruelty. His defiance leads to open war, setting the stage for events that are unfolding monthly in the pages of THE BLOOD QUEEN. Watch as the lines are drawn, as magic and steel chose sides, and as the destinies of kingdoms are decided! But then, what about Elizabeth and The Elder? How did the woman that will become the Blood Queen come into the Elder's keeping? Witness the pivotal events that began Elizabeth's mission and set her on a dark road. It's all here in GHOSTS OF WAR, THE BLOOD QUEEN ANNUAL. Also featuring a special back-up story written by Dan Wickline.
