Milsa, a young apothecary during the worst plague her home has ever seen, seeks to unravel the secrets of her city’s repressed religion and find the supernatural origins of
the devasting disease after an encounter with a witch leaves her the guardian of an
undead child and the only witness to the beginning of the ghosts who now haunt Angorin.
Further complicating her quest is the reappearance of her childhood sweetheart Yaros, a
mage of immense power—and the heir to the now empty throne of the prince.
