An immortal monster hunter and a royal handmaiden embark on an epic journey to change their fates in this soul-stirring young adult fantasy novel for fans of The Witcher and The Last Unicorn.
By night, the Ankou is a legendary, permanently young sword for hire—the most fearsome mercenary in all of the Five Lands, and its most abiding mystery. But by day, a dark magic leaves him no more than bones. Cursed with this endless cycle of death and resurrection, the Ankou wants only to find the final rest that has been prophesied for him, no matter the cost.
When the kingdom of Kaer-Ise is sacked, Flora, handmaiden to the royal family, is assaulted and left for dead. Wounded, heartbroken, and the sole survivor of the massacre, Flora wants desperately to be reunited with the princess she served and loved. She and the Ankou make a deal: He will help Flora find her princess, and train Flora in combat, in exchange for her aid in breaking his curse. But it isn’t easy to kill an immortal, especially when their bond begins to deepen into something more….
Together, they will solve mysteries, battle monsters, and race against time in this fantasy novel about sacrifice, love, and healing.
