Synopsis: The veil is thinning. Every day more undead creatures slip into Everra. Soon their most terrifying kin, spawn of the dark goddess Orestin, will emerge to devour all life. Master Historian Mycellane enlists an aging Knight and an inexperienced priestess to join him on a journey to obtain an ancient artifact-one that can bring an end to the incursion. But their salvation lies on the other side of the veil, in the Dead Waste of Myrcantos, and only one person can bring them through: a Myrcantan necromancer who remains loyal to the enemy. The path before them leads through a barren, unforgiving land. Ravenous abominations lurk in the shadows. But the greatest danger to their mission is the hatred and distrust they feel for one another…

Review: I had to dnf this book at about 67% through. While the book is pretty good and it was hooking me in, I felt like I really new where the book was going and it became a bit uninteresting to me after that. This isn’t unusual, because I am very good at guessing the endings of books. But this time I was really bummed out when, skipping to the end, I saw that my predictions came true.

Verdict: Not for me but maybe for you!
