Silas Umber is growing into his role as Undertaker of Lichport after the death of his father. When he is summoned to Arvale, the ancestral home of the Umbers, he learns that he has greater powers than he knew about as he participates in the rite of Door Doom, which gives him the ability to bind the dead in judgment.
Silas Umber has finally come into his own as the Undertaker of Lichport when a mysterious invitation calls him beyond the marshes to Arvale, the ancestral manor of the Umbers. There, his extended family endures, waiting for a living Undertaker to return and preside over the Door Doom, an archaic rite that grants a terrible power to summon and bind the dead in judgment.
