On the very edge of the galaxy lies Akosheman: a putrefied world of legendary evil

In the year 2382 archaeologists land on Akosheman's only moon, searching for evidence of the planet's infamous past. But when the Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa re drawn into the lunar cavers they find more than a team of academics - and help uncover more than ancient history.

Something is lying in wait, deep inside the labyrinth of caves: something that remembers the spiral of war, pestilence and deprivation that ruined Akoshemon. Something that rejoiced in every kind of horror and destruction.

An age-old terror is about to be reborn. But what is the hideous secret of the Bloodhunter? And why does Nyssa feel that her thoughts are no longer her own? Forced to confront his own worst fears, even the Doctor wil be pushed to breaking point - and beyond.
