The Keeper of the Dead protects all souls; living and dead.
Newly named Keeper of the Dead, Sondra Carstairs, senses a new threat to the remote Atlantic island of Anona. When a soul reaches out to her from deep within the formless energy of the veil, Sondra receives the confirmation she needs. For when this soul walked among the living, he was a powerful Man of the Sea and her father.
Then Livy Talbot, Sondra’s cousin, arrives on Anona and the threat is revealed: an enemy of the Keeper with the ability to command the sea into a deadly storm. To keep her cousin alive, Sondra follows her instincts—and her father’s guidance—and banishes the storm. In doing so, she reveals her own strength to this faceless islander that sends storms easily from the shadows.
When this islander reveals an additional ability to steal another’s soul, Sondra has to figure out who this islander is—and why they are determined to push Anona into the Land of the Dead, from where none will return.
