the Author



When Corporal Kaylin Neya is assigned front desk duty — a task hated by every Hawk — the only thing she can look forward to besides an endless stream of complaints is visits from a dotty old woman. She always brings baked goods along with infor­ma­tion passed on by her friends…who happen to be ghosts no one else can see. But then the old woman’s invis­ible friends have news about Severn Handred: his unusual weapon has caught their atten­tion. Concerned, Kaylin accom­pa­nies the woman home because she has a few ques­tions to ask these so-called ghosts.

Sadly, Kaylin can also see them. And she can see other spirits in the woman’s house as well — four chil­dren who’ve been trapped there for decades. When Kaylin looks into the deaths in the records at the Halls of Law, some­thing doesn’t add up. Factor in a building that isn’t supposed to exist, and nothing makes sense. But Kaylin is a Hawk, and she’s deter­mined to free the trapped ghosts of the chil­dren, even if she’s suddenly landed in the middle of the bad kind of Barrani history. Someone doesn’t want the past to be uncov­ered, and they’re perfectly willing to destroy Kaylin if it preserves the secrets of the dead…
