Publisher's Summary

Though I’ve been exonerated through the Necromancer Trial, there are those who are convinced that I am a devil-woman who should be exiled, or worse, killed.

I’m trapped by the Laws of the Lost Texts. I can’t simply buy a ticket to the train and leave. I have to endure the Bridal Auction and hope my newfound friend, Quade, will be able to purchase my hand in marriage. If he fails his bid, I will be married off to one of the Crats. I’d rather be declared Unclaimed and condemned to a life of servitude to the community.

All the while, the secret necromancer lurks in the shadows threatening to upturn my life and expose my true nature.

To finally have control over my own life, I may have to take the ultimate risk and escape over the wall into the Deadlands.

Extremely Suspenseful

It has been a long time since I have come across a book with this much suspense. I was afraid that things would go wrong at the bridal auction or that the council would take Ilyse into custody, or worse. Then there were the competing voices vying for Ilyse's commitment. It is terrible when you do not know who to trust. Also, I had a deep desire for Quade to just run away with Ilyse. I felt trapped right alongside her.

There were shocking revelations of betrayal and plain evil done to Ilyse and her family but there were plenty of satisfying twists and pay-backs. The most thrilling part was revealed closer to the end, things revealed that let you know that the sequel is likely to be incredible. I can't wait!

I gave this book 5 stars on all points. This is a well-written series and the author selected an amazing narrator. I wish I could give more than 5 stars for the narration.

I was given this audiobook upon my request in exchange for a review and I am so glad because I loved it.

I really enjoyed this book

When I first started I could tell it was the second in a series. Took me a little while to figure things out as I hadn’t read the first book first. It was still good by itself but now I want to read the first one.

intense

this book like the one before flows from a short story of a crazed necromancer. the world is Rich and alive with the dead. A young woman sold like cattle facing terrible odds. she discovers all the answers to that which plages her. it leaves on full of hope and desire to see what her future will bring her. there is a growing need in me to know what the future brings to her and her family.

Great listen

That was quite the turn of events. I am really enjoying this point of view and look forward to hearing more. I like Rhiannon's style of writing. The narrator is still just a tad bit automated.

So good I listened to it in one sitting!

I was sad to finish this book because I don't have a third to start. Such a great story. You will be on such an emotional ride that will only leave you begging for more. The characters are very well developed as is the environment and culture. The narrator did a very good job bringing the characters to life. I just want more!!!!

Awesome💛

The second book carries on from book one. Strong characters, wonderfully horrible concept of a regressed suppressed religious zealot following town set amongst a reanimated corpse world where a minority of gifted necromacers are reviled or revered depending on they in the land they live. Theres a love story, tradegy mystery and characters who stand strong against the odds. Great narrator. I hope there a third book. I highly recommend the short story set before the necromancer book too.
