Publisher's Summary

Magic itself has been poisoned, and Allie Beckstrom's undead father may have left the only cure in the hands of a madman. Hunted by the Authority - the secret council who enforces the laws - wanted by the police, and unable to use magic, she's got to find the cure before the sickness spreads beyond any power to stop it.

But when a death magic user seeks to destroy the only thing that can heal magic, Allie and her fellow renegades must stand and fight to defend the innocent and save all magic....

Critic Reviews

"War is coming, and Monk does an outstanding job ratcheting up the tension and danger, keeping both characters and readers on a knife's edge." (RT Book Reviews)

liked the book but...

I enjoyed the book overall but the narrator sounds different. I'm not quite sure why when it says it is the same one. but the still has the great sorry I've come to expect.

Finally! I stubornly waited for Audio versions

I had completely given up on the series since Monk's publisher didn't release audio for so long! So worth the wait and the two final books gave me a reason to re-listen to the series start to finish.

Hopefully, the two books about Shame and Terric make it to Audible one of these days!
