In the midst of a building magical war, Kim Reed thought she had found a bit of peace, a silver lining. Lenny, the friend she lost years ago, is safe, the monster who kidnapped him is dead, and this war cannot last long with so much raw power ranged against the enemy.
But Lenny is not the man he was. There is something dark in him, something growing stronger by the day. Something that has caught the attention of the Shadows that live between the worlds.
She knows she cannot fight her many battles alone, but allies are few and far between. Jadwiga, the mora, remains secretive and aloof, and Kim’s old friend Daniel has a bloodier past than she had ever dreamed.
And it is possible, just possible, that worse is coming than war. As Shadows close in, and the Veil between worlds grows tangled and thick, Death has gone missing, and soon, ghosts will crowd the living from the face of the earth.
