'Zvonimir creates wind chimes that can summon the shadowy spirit of whatever they are made of. His old friend, war hero, and city Watchman, Casimir arrives at his door with the body of a murder victim, and asks him to build a wind chime from their bones. The city Necromancers have been unable to raise the victim’s spirit, and plagued by his own demons and doubts, Casimir turns again to his oldest friend — as he always does in his times of need. But Zvonimir can not foresee the song the bone chime will sing, or the impact it will have on both of them' (Joanne Anderton: Blog, Publications, Miscellany).
