About The Book

Bethany is a minstrel, a wanderer, and a would-be hero seeking adventure. She's also a reviled necromancer, hated and hunted by all. To prove her magic isn't evil, Bethany needs help from a murderous mercenary, in other words, a friend.


Bethany is a minstrel with a heart full of adventure, a would-be hero determined to find a missing boy from the town of Llyne, and a friend to all woodland critters. But mostly the dead ones...because Bethany is also a necromancer. She's out to prove her magic isn't evil, and she'll need the help of a hot-headed, sword-swinging mercenary named Elissar—that is, she'll need the help of a friend.
