Shortlisted for the Text Prize.
Meredythe Jones, seventeen, necromancer, uni student. Humour, heartbreak, politics and an adventure in Otherworld she'll never forget.
The story follows her journey as she tries to avoid her mother’s ghost, find her place in society, and finish the job that the Fae dragged her into Otherworld to do; raise the king and make him choose an heir. But when a cloaked figure tells her that the king was murdered, she doesn’t know who to trust, or what to do.
Ultimately the decisions she makes will lead to heartache and bloodshed, leaving her with the understanding that it’s not what you are that makes you human, it’s what you do.
