Description

The dramatic conclusion to Jenna Burtenshaw's YA dark fantasy trilogy and the sequel to Shadowcry and Blackwatch. This stunningly original series will be loved by fans of Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass series and Leigh Bardugo's Grisha trilogy.

Teen Kate Winters and her powers are unique. She is descended from an ancient and powerful bloodline. She alone can understand Wintercraft, a book of ancient secrets. She alone can stand between the living and the dead as the veil between them crumbles. Kate is being led to the very edge of life and death so that she can call down all the spirits that haunt the graveyard city of Fume. No one can resist the pull of the crumbling veil, and soon the dead will overrun the living. Unless Silas and Edgar can stop her. Edgar is Kate's best friend and her one anchor to the living. But Silas is enigmatic, merciless, and often cruel. Will this villain we love to hate act honorably? Or not?

Jenna Burtenshaw has created not just a magnificent city full of intrigue and darkness, but also a hero and an antihero who will keep you guessing until the end. Who can you trust when good and evil are bound together?

Back cover copy

The dead are restless.The veil between the living and the dead is weakening.The graveyard city of Fume is over-run by ghosts.

And Kate Winters--the one person powerful enough to bring life and death back into balance--has been captured by an ancient and power-hungry enemy.

Kate is returning to home to Albion just as it reaches the brink of utter chaos. But she isn't there to save it. She's there to obliterate it. Caught in a trap laid by the most powerful sorceress in the world, Kate will be the catalyst for the final destruction of the veil. And the dead will swarm the living.

Silas Dane is following her. Though he is half-dead himself--and may be a murderer and a disgraced warrior--he will not let Albion down in its hour of need. Together he and Kate will turn to the dark secrets of her family's legacy: the book of Wintercraft.

Those who wish to see the dark, it's time to pay the price.

Our customer reviews

This is the third book in The Secrets of Wintercraft series. I haven’t read either of the prior books, but this book stood alone just fine; however, as with most series, you get a deeper story of the characters and their world, it’s always best to start at the beginning. This was definitely a well written book and Kate Winters definitely is a powerfully written character that most readers will be able to relate to, outside the special powers stuff of course.
