National best-selling authors Barb and J. C. Hendee present the newest breathtaking chapter in the epic Noble Dead saga.... Waylaid in their quest for the orb of the air, Magiere, Leesil, Chap, and Wayfarer have all been wrongly imprisoned. But it is Magiere, the dhampir, who suffers the most, as a cloaked interrogator employs telepathic torture. Arriving at the Suman port city in search of Magiere, Wynn Hygeorht and her companions - including vampire Chane Andraso - seek out Domin Ghassan il'Sänke for assistance, which proves no easy task. The domin is embroiled in a secret hunt for a spectral undead with the power to invade anyone living and take the body as its host. Even if Wynn can manage to free her friends from prison, battling this entirely new kind of undead hidden inside host bodies may be a challenge none of them can survive....

This is another great Eby book, that is not overwhelmingly the annoying Winn character. Although, this was weird in that when Magiere was first rescued and in very bad shape, Leesil did not stay by her side. Instead, he would close the door and sit in the front room with the others despite the author writing that he cared for her. I wondered if this was foreshadowing his having grown weary of dealing with her and he was going to leave her. Instead, it was just a poorly written scene. Also, the lack of detail regarding their months of suffering in the castle was odd, but still a good story
This book was lacked the cohesiveness of other Eby books, like why would you not sit with the person you love while they are recovering, why would they be convinced one among them had betrayed them, but still accept him in the group, why even mention the elf's ruining their breakout plan with his failure to kill others but then never address it. Other such things, but still a good story.
