"In the New York Times bestselling Noble Dead saga, Barb and J.C. Hendee created an engrossing mix of "intrigue, epic fantasy, and horror." Now, they present a bold new series set in the same world, where the destinies of two hunters shaped by the shadows of their pasts are about to collide... In the dark reaches of the eastern continent, Tris Vishal travels from village to village, using his power to put unsettled spirits to rest. He works alone, having learned that letting people close only leads to more death. Still, he finds himself accepting the help of the Mondyalítko woman who saves his life--a woman whose gifts are as much a burden as his own. Mari Kaleja thirsted for vengeance since the night her family was taken from her. She has searched far and wide for the one she thinks responsible, known only as "The Dead's Man." But before she can kill him, she has to be sure. Mari hopes traveling with Tris will confirm her suspicions. But as they embark on a hunt where the living are just as dangerous as the dead, she learns the risks of keeping your enemy close... Because it's no longer clear who is predator and who is prey"-- Provided by publisher.

I borrowed this book from my library. I enjoyed the Noble Dead series. This book starts in a similar vein as the Noble Dead series with a man and woman meeting under difficult circumstances. At first they don't like each other but to survive work together.

Good suspense through the book although the story was a little predictable given the author's previous works. No real plot surprises or twists, typical of this author who writes fairly straight story lines.

I like the main female character as you do not see very many Gypsy characters shown in a good light. I like the fact that the Gypsy woman is a lycanthrope, which is not something you see often in fantasy unless she is evil and out to kill the MC.

My complaints with this book is the same ones that I have with every one of this author's books:
(1) No pronunciation guide. If you are going to name characters and races with an alphabet soup, please include a pronunciation guide.
(2) The female MC is a damn Gypsy, call her a Gypsy which is simple and easy to pronounce. Why does this author have to create races and names with such complicated names? I commend the author on her creativity, but damn I cannot wrap my mind around some of the names and races. I just substituted "gypsy" every time the female MC's race was mentioned.
