Book Two in the Terminal City Saga
Now a certified necromancer, Mason Cross is on his way to Winter's End, a hidden academy in the north and a refuge from the world.
But Mason has an agenda, one he hasn't shared with his companions--who consequently may no longer be his companions in a few days.
And that may not even be their biggest problem. There's an even greater threat no one sees coming.
"Every age gets the necromancer it deserves – and every city gets the end it has coming." - Peter Darbyshire, author of The Mona Lisa Sacrifice
"Melanson subverts the tropes he's introduced and plays skillfully with the reader's expectations. Clearly familiar with authors like Neil Gaiman and China Miéville, Melanson's first novel sets forth into similar territory and proves he's learned from those who've trod that ground before." -- Eric Gauf
