The Kindly Ones
is the ninth volume in the epic saga of The Sandman
The penultimate chapter finds Morpheus, Lord of Dreams, paying the price for his many painful choices and unwise decisions throughout the series. A vengeful goddess unleashes the wrath of the Furies (the Kindly Ones) upon the Sandman. Past characters return, previous storylines unite, and the fate of The Dreaming is decided in an explosive and unforgettable climax that is as inevitable as it is heart-rending.
The Lord of Dreams killed his own son and now must face the consequences as his fate is decided by the Kindly Ones.
Distraught by the kidnapping and presumed death of her son, and believing Morpheus to be responsible, Lyta Hall calls the ancient wrath of the Furies down upon him.
A former superheroine blames Morpheus for the death of her child and summons an ancient curse of vengeance against the Lord of Dream. The "kindly ones" enter his realm and force a sacrifice that will change the Dreaming forever.
