Where Death leads, I follow. Nothing will stop me from my duty - not even the darkness that claims me. It’s the music that leads me from the dark, returning me to my brethren and a new foe that has risen. Learning who hunts Thea could be the key to unraveling what we need to know to defeat our enemy. The Half-Fae’s music stirs a passion within me that I’ve never known. For her, I will break my vow of silence. For her, I will risk everything.

I wasn’t crazy about the story because I expected more medieval highland dress and mannerisms. Also, the heroine moved in and took over with no conflicts among the ladies and it was like they didn’t know how to clean without her.
