Mason Cross never wanted to be anything like his father, a famous professor who, it turns out, was also a necromancer. But death changes people. Now Mason is following in his dead dad's footsteps, down a dark, solitary path between two competing lives: one as a student at Terminal City's top university, the other as a necromancer. But will he find the answers he's looking for? Or will he find only death, caught in a hidden war between necromancers and a religious inquisition?
As the gravity of both worlds bears down on him, Mason will need to discover not just new power — but what a human life is really worth.
