'The Eleven Domains were forged in blood a thousand years ago. The blood is about to flow again. Bramble is as wild as the animals she follows deep into the forest near her village. Her dark eyes betray her heritage - she's a Traveller, one of the despised original people of the Domains. And for as long as she can remember, she has wanted to take to the Road like her grandfather. But the gods who dwell near the alders always say no ... In Turvite, where the ghosts drift along dark cobbled streets, Ash must leave his parents, and the Road, to begin an apprenticeship with the only person who will accept a Traveller - the scheming, yet irrestible, Doronit. But the gods who linger in the gloomy square have other plans for him ... From different ends of the Eleven Domains, death casts Bramble and Ash on journeys across valleys and mountains, deep into themselves and the dark history of their ancestors.'

Bramble must find the bones of the long-dead warlord Acton, to put the ghosts at rest. But first she has to live through Acton's life with the help of Ash and the Well of Secrets. For his part, Ash can only quieten the spirits by singing to them - singing one of the songs his Traveller father refused to teach him. In order to learn the song he must journey to the Deeps and prove he is worthy of this knowledge. Bramble and Ash discover feelings that they never would have expected, and nor would we, the readers...' (Source: Publisher's blurb)

'Saker the enchanter will stop at nothing to destroy the Eleven Domains, but has he unleashed a worse evil? As he builds his terrifying army of ghosts, screams from the nether world torment him, foretelling a greater disaster than he can imagine. When Ash is forced to acknowledge his true self in the caverns of the Deep, he realises that all power is duty-bound. He helps Bramble raise Acton's ghost, although plagued by doubts: Who is this ancient warrior - murderer or saviour? And will he help strangers protect a world he has never known? 

'Grieving an impossible love, Bramble learns the painful truth behind the demon's prophecy. She is a leader born but will she reach Turvite in time to face Saker and save the Domains?' (Sourced from publisher's website.)
