Book Description
In the aftermath of the Purging, the Deadbringers are no more. The Ascendancy has positioned itself as the land’s dominant power by exploiting the people’s fear of the Deadbringers’ innate abilities to summon souls and reanimate the dead. 
Yet its hold is not complete, for in the North the Bastion stands in the way of the Ascendancy and its iron-willed elite soldiers, the Sanctifiers. But, somehow, a single Deadbringer has managed to survive. Kira Vidal, a boy of fifteen, has remained hidden, living peacefully with his uncle in the northern city of Opulancae under the Bastion’s protection. 

But it seems their luck is at an end when rumors begin to spread, and a strange man shows up at their door, seeking the forbidden services of a Deadbringer. Aware of the dangers should word of his nature reach the Ascendancy, Kira makes a promise to himself to protect his beloved uncle at all costs, even if it means pursuing the limits of his powers … and learning painful truths.

My Thoughts

I loved it. A very different story, well-developed characters and a fantastic world building. Loved the characters and the dialogues. Something about the character's interactions that gives the story a very special touch. 

The Author does a pretty good job at showing us this world and these characters that after the first few pages I was totally invested in the story and the journey Kira and all the other characters go through. There are very specific scenes that took my breath away and I just wanted to keep reading and know what was going to happen next. Some others were very emotional and made me feel closer to the characters. Something else I like, the character's names, very unique. A debut Novel which I totally recommend not only for those who like Dark Fantasy but also for people looking for unforgettable characters and a unique story. Can't wait for book two. 

Many, many thanks to the Author, E.M. Markoff for kindly sending a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
