Naya, the daughter of a sea merchant captain, nervously undertakes her first solo trading mission in the necromancer-friendly country bordering her homeland of Talmir. Unfortunately, she never even makes it to the meeting. She's struck down in the streets of Ceramor. Murdered.
But death is not the end for Naya. She awakens to realize she's become an abomination—a wraith, a ghostly creature bound by runes inscribed on the bones of her former corpse. She's been resurrected in order to become a spy for her country, but the circumstances of her resurrection are mysterious and sinister.
Naya never intended to become embroiled in political plots, kidnapping, and murder, nor did she expect to fall in love with the young man she is destined to betray.
