Nothing complicates life like Death.
Lanie Stones, the daughter of crown-appointed killers, was born with a gift for necromancy—and a literal allergy to violence. For her own safety, she was raised in isolation in a crumbling mansion by the family's mouldering revenant.
When Lanie's parents are murdered, she and her psychotic sister Nita must settle their extensive debts or lose their ancestral home. When Liriat's ruler, too, is murdered, it throws the whole nation's future into doubt.
Hunted by Liriat's enemies, terrorised by family ghosts and tortured by a forbidden love for a childhood friend, Lanie will need more than luck to get through the next few months—but when the goddess of Death is on your side, anything is possible.
