Publisher's Summary

Saiya Buchanan is a wraith, able to detach her shadow from her body and send it off to do her bidding. But, unlike most of her kin, Saiya doesn't deal in death. Instead, she trades secrets - and in the goblin besieged city of Stirling in Scotland, they're a highly prized commodity. It might just be, however, that the goblins have been hiding the greatest secret of them all.

When Gabriel de Florinville, a Dark Elf, is sent as royal envoy into Stirling and takes her prisoner, Saiya is not only going to uncover the sinister truth. She's also going to realize that sometimes the deepest secrets are the ones locked within your own heart.

I love the avoidance of tropes

A fun Scottish story. the characters aren't who you expect them to be in a good way. there is the core of a neat mythology here.

Loved the novel and the narrator

I couldn't stop listening to this novel. I had to finish it as fast as possible. The narrator was superb, and the storyline kept me engaged from start to finish. The characters were well developed and likeable. More, please!

Great book and superb narration!

This is a great stand alone book. The story was well written and the characters were extremely relatable. I really enjoyed it and finished it in a day! The narrator did SUCH a great job with each character. I was never confused at who was speaking since everyone had their own distinct voices. I would like be for her to narrate more book in the UF genre!

Not for me

The premise of this story is interesting but it's not what I expected. I couldn't finish it.
