Summary

The undead are here and only the Deacons stand in their way. 

The Order of the Deacons stand as protectors of the Empire, guardians against ghost possession, sentinels warding off the malevolent haunting of the geists. 

Sorcha Faris, the most powerful deacon of the Order, finds herself thrust into an unwanted partnership with a total novice, Merrick Chambers. That’s bad enough, but when they are dispatched to an isolated village to counter a surge of violent geist activity, they find their fate bound with Raed Rossin. Shapeshifter and Pretender to the Imperial throne, he bears a terrible curse which endangers them all. 

As they investigate, the strange settlement is reveled to be haunted by a undead creature more predatory and horrifying than any encountered before. Together they quest to uncover the mystery of twisted rituals passed down through the dark reaches of history intent on striking at the heart of the Empire. 

Can three powerful and troubled people discover a way to work together to save the citizens and themselves?

Takes a while to get into it.

I started the book and disliked it as it seemed confused (maybe I was) and was going to return it but I couldn’t so I persevered. It really did get better but the narrator (author - sorry) grated on me and the dreadful music between chapters was dire.

Moaning over, the story is well constructed and you start to like the characters even though they have their flaws. I was pleasantly surprised at the unexpected twists in the story and was left wanting to hear more. A brief review but worth your time and I will definitely try the second book.

Excellent book

When this started I thought it was going to be another over complicated book, how wrong can one be. I did give up after the first half hour, but return for another try a few days later. Once back listening I could not stop. It has only taken a few days to hear because I wanted to saver the experience. The author has created a remarkable world, well worth taking the time to listen.
