Publisher's Summary

The undead are here and only the Deacons stand in their way. 

The Order of the Deacons stand as protectors of the Empire, guardians against ghost possession, sentinels warding off the malevolent haunting of the geists. 

Sorcha Faris, the most powerful deacon of the Order, finds herself thrust into an unwanted partnership with a total novice, Merrick Chambers. That’s bad enough, but when they are dispatched to an isolated village to counter a surge of violent geist activity, they find their fate bound with Raed Rossin. Shapeshifter and Pretender to the Imperial throne, he bears a terrible curse which endangers them all. 

As they investigate, the strange settlement is reveled to be haunted by a undead creature more predatory and horrifying than any encountered before. Together they quest to uncover the mystery of twisted rituals passed down through the dark reaches of history intent on striking at the heart of the Empire. 

Can three powerful and troubled people discover a way to work together to save the citizens and themselves?

love Philippa Ballantine's work!!!!

I first discovered this amazing woman's work free when I was a poor single mom. Her stories transport me, her voice is like velvet to my soul. I love her characters and can't wait to find out what will happen next. I highly recommend all her stories and love the ones co-authored with Tee Morris. At first I could only find those to purchase, I was thrilled to find all her work here at audible.

Excellent performance held back by a weak story

An intriguing premise, but lacking depth in both world building and character development. The magic system seems undeveloped or only loosely expained as new abilities are introduced almost dues ex machina, except when they do nothing anyway. The characters are one dimensional and thier relationships weakly defined. I had high hopes for this story, but its execution is just disappointment.

The best I can say about the audiobook is that the narrator/author has an epic voice and listening to her voice the protagonist is enjoyable.
