Those who wish to see the dark, be ready to pay your price.

The Night of Souls—when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest—is only days away. Albion is at war . . . and losing. And fifteen-year-old Kate Winters has just raised a blackbird from the dead.

As her home is torn apart, Kate’s discovery that she is one of the rare people who can cross the veil between life and death makes her the most hunted person in all of Albion. Captured and taken to the graveyard city of Fume—where her parents met their deaths ten years ago—Kate must harness her extraordinary powers to save herself, her country, and the two men she cares for most. And she’ll make a pact with a murderer to do it.


At the southern edge of a moonlit city, a woman stood over an open grave.

Page 56:

“Do you know who I am?” he asked.

Kate nodded firmly, trying not to give away her fear.

“Then you should know that no one escapes me once I have set my mind upon their capture. No bargains are granted, no freedoms or mercy are offered or given. You have something I want, and I believe you can help me find something I need.”


I bought this book years ago and it’s just been sitting on my shelf. I added it to my TBR challenge for the year, so I figured it was a good time to actually get around to reading my challenge books. This one sounds really interesting and I’m excited to see what happens in this book.

What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Reading!
