The war was supposed to be over.

Tira Archer is done with killing, done with fighting. She's hung up her bow, saddled her mule, and headed for home. But children are disappearing from the peaceful village of Raven Crossing. Her search for the children brings her face to face with vicious kidnappers, goblin armies, and mercenary dwarves. A war is brewing, and not just any war. It's a war where the dead don't stay fallen. 

Hurt, exhausted, and sick of fighting, Tira will have to take up her bow once again. Somewhere there is a dark wizard manipulating the living and controlling the dead. Tira is saving an arrow just for him. He plans to rule the world, but he hasn't planned on Tira Archer. 


Tira is after a necromancer who uses the dead as puppets in her mad schemes. She gets sidetracked BY Su, who's on the run from nasty bounty hunters, Alerak, who thinks Su is a murderer, and Roth, assassin turned priest, who's hunting the real killer. Tira senses the hand of the necromancer behind it all. Now she has to rescue Su from the gallows, pluck Roth from the clutches of pirates, keep Alerak from a deadly trap, and lead them all in an assault on a fortress. Tira's going to bring down a necromancer, and may the gods help anyone who gets in her way! 


When a dead king rises to reclaim his throne, Tira Archer and her companions see the hand of a dark sorceress behind it. They've sworn to finish the necromancer who's brought so much murder and destruction into their lives, but it won't be easy. They'll face assassins, a charming rogue with a hidden agenda, and an army of idealistic rebels who've sworn loyalty to a king ten years dead. 

Now they must ride into a goblin-infested wilderness and battle renegades and mercenaries to reach a mad sorceress and try to stop her before she can plunge an entire kingdom into war. They will pay a terrible price, but one way or another, the sorceress WILL be stopped.
