Now, the fugitive finds himself on planet Helion, home to a progressive multi-cultural society that has been invaded by the Lord Marshal, a despot who targets humans for subjugagtion with his army of warriors known as Necromongers. Exiled to a subterranean prison where extremes of temperature range from arctic nights to volcanic days, Riddick encounters Kyra, the lone survivor from an earlier chapter in his life.
