Those who wish to see the dark, be ready to pay your price.
The Night of Souls--when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest--is only days away. Albion is at war . . . and losing. And fifteen-year-old Kate Winters has just raised a blackbird from the dead.
As her home is torn apart, Kate's discovery that she is one of the rare people who can cross the veil between life and death makes her the most hunted person in all of Albion. Captured and taken to the graveyard city of Fume--where her parents met their deaths ten years ago--Kate must harness her extraordinary powers to save herself, her country, and the two men she cares for most. And she'll make a pact with a murderer to do it.
