Placed in the same world as --and parallel to-- "Of Swords and Souls". The second story from the "War of the Souls Chornicles":
The Wraith, the silent shadow who eats souls to survive. The Beast, the savage Hunter of Wraiths and sins. The Child, the exiled heir to the greatest Huntress, seeking honour and throne.
The Huntress, bearer of the true meaning of an alluring con desguised as a prophecy.
In the land down under, a war between Wraiths and Hunters is reaching the end. A prophecy speaks of the opening of a door that leads to the end of the mortal world. The gate keeper: the Master Wraith, seeking the key to unlock it. The Academy, where the Hunters are turned and trained will do anything to stop the prophecy.
But, is the Huntress right about the truth of the prophecy? Is she in time to save her family and the future of the mortal world? Has she sent her granddaughter, Nyah, and the Wraith, William, on a quest to their deaths or to salvation? Or, will they unleash something worse than an army of Wraiths upon the mortal world?
