'On a shattered throne, sitting among the dead, rests the most powerful and arrogant sorcerer of the age. This is Gavriel, the Witch King, who has claimed his father's house with fire and death and spared not even his family, save for his eldest brother and a sister. He tells them of his quest for knowledge and power and of a coming threat against the world much greater than any imagined. He tells them the story of his life, of how he became the Witch King.'
