A tale of cultural clash and poignant love, violence and discovery is told with compassion and detail. Remy has created a land where lies magic and death and barrows and others.
This story details murder and growth.
Avani is a survivor of a natural disaster and both lonely and alone. She tends sheep and weaves, seen as an outsider in Stonehill Downs. Mal is a Vocent, the king's counselor, mortician, detective and assassin. He is ghost ridden and is some ways as lonely as Avani.
Remy crafts memorable characters and creates a new look at those who live under the barrows. She has put together a plot and has woven a story of intricate tapestry with vivid colors and startling scenes.
I really enjoyed the book.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
