In the New York Times bestselling Noble Dead saga, Barb and J.C. Hendee created an engrossing mix of “intrigue, epic fantasy, and horror.”* Now, they present a bold new series set in the same world, where the destinies of two hunters shaped by the shadows of their pasts are about to collide...
In the dark reaches of the eastern continent, Tris Vishal travels from village to village, using his power to put unsettled spirits to rest. He works alone, having learned that letting people close only leads to more death. Still, he finds himself accepting the help of the Móndyalítko woman who saves his life—a woman whose gifts are as much a burden as his own.
Mari Kaleja thirsted for vengeance since the night her family was taken from her. She has searched far and wide for the one she thinks responsible, known only as “The Dead’s Man.” But before she can kill him, she has to be sure. Mari hopes traveling with Tris will confirm her suspicions. But as they embark on a hunt where the living are just as dangerous as the dead, she learns the risks of keeping your enemy close...
Because it’s no longer clear who is predator and who is prey.
I rather enjoyed this fast paced fantasy book it makes you keep turning the page and before you know it you are done.
I liked the world building that was rather enjoyable and easy to follow. The same goes with the characters.
The characters are easy to relate to and follow, but you really never know who you can trust up to the end.
I enjoyed the suspense we get throughout the book that keeps you guessing.
There are some pretty good twists and turns and most you really don’t see coming and will surprise you.
While the ending was satisfying and we get some very much needed answers I was happy to see that there will be more books.
I’m very much looking forward to see how things will continue.
Overall I really enjoyed this book give it 4★
