'A real page-turner, one that kept me guessing, and pulling the rug out from under me' Novel Notions
'This fantasy world was beautiful and deadly . . . [I] adored this and will be recommending it to everyone' Netgalley reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Raine is seventeen-years-old and still on the run. She can see the dead, a secret that could get her killed. Seeking refuge with a deluded cult is her latest bad decision but rescuing an injured woman in the snow is soon revealed to be a horrific mistake. Hazia endangers not just Raine, but the whole world: she's escaped from Redwinter, fortress-monastery of the Draoihn, the warrior magicians who answer to no king or queen of the land, but to their own Grand Master. They will stop at nothing to retrieve what she's stolen.
Raine must survive by her wits, and her skill with a bow in a world turned upside down. A battle, a betrayal and a horrific revelation finds her herself inside Redwinter, where anyone caught communing with ghosts is put to death. As conspirators plot to release an ancient enemy, Raine's ability to see the dead might be their only hope, but to use her power would see her condemned.
'A world that won't let you go, along with a strong heroine who pulls you in emotionally, in a story that thrills you . . . This book is a page-turner that kept you hooked the whole time and pulled the rug out from under me!' Netgalley reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
'The world itself is fantastic, medieval in structure and Scottish in flavour . . . As the first book of a new series, I couldn't have asked for any more, it's gripping, exciting, and I want more' Netgalley reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
'A girl who can see ghosts, betrayal, intrigue, magic - sounds right up my alley! The worldbuilding in this book was fascinating, and I really liked the Scottish-inspired setting and clan dynamics . . . Seeing Raine grow throughout the story was fascinating, and I loved her (flawed) perspective - she's a great heroine and I'm excited to see what she gets up to in the sequel' Netgalley reviewer, ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
