Publisher's Summary

Sable hated the gods. She hated what men did in their name. 

Magic is forbidden throughout the Five Provinces; those born with it are hunted and killed. Sable doesn't know her music holds power over souls, not until, at age nine, she plays her flute before the desert court and accidentally stops her baby sister's heart, killing her. Horrified by what she's done and fearing for her life, she flees north, out of Provincial jurisdiction and into the frigid land of exiles and thieves, known as The Wilds. There, Sable lives in hiding, burdened by guilt, and survives as a healer. But now, 10 years later, someone, or something, is hunting her. 

On the run again, Sable's best chance for survival is Jos, a lethal man from the Five Provinces, who claims to need her skills as a healer to save his dying father, and she needs the large sum of money he's offered. There's something about him Sable doesn't trust, but she doesn't have many options. A spirit of the dead is hunting her, summoned by a mysterious necromancer, and it's getting closer. 

Sable soon discovers she's just the start of the necromancer's plan to take over the Five Provinces, and she's the only one with the power to stop it. But harnessing her forbidden power means revealing it to the world and the dangerous Provincial, Jos, she's beginning to fall for.

I am in love with these characters. What an amazing story

If you want to get to know an amazingly unique world full of wonder, this is the book for you. I found my self fully invested in the characters. While reading I started daydreaming of the possible outcomes. I could literally see the movie play as I slept. This is the first book I have read by Barbara Kloss. I will read everything she writes and you should too.

loved the book, love the narration more

I originally read this book a while ago and when I saw an opportunity to download it from the author I snatched it up! What was a great story on paper really came to life with the narration. Emma Lysy really gave emotion and depth to each character. It was a pleasure to listen to and only makes me want the next chapter in this story even more.
