In the dark reaches of the eastern continent, Tris Vishal travels from village to village, using his power to put unsettled spirits to rest. He works alone, having learned that letting people close only leads to more death.
Still, he finds himself accepting the help of the Mondyalitko woman who saves his life a woman whose gifts are as much a burden as his own.
Mari Kaleja thirsted for vengeance since the night her family was taken from her. She has searched far and wide for the one she thinks responsible, known only as The Dead s Man.
But before she can kill him, she has to be sure. Mari hopes traveling with Tris will confirm her suspicions.
But as they embark on a hunt where the living are just as dangerous as the dead, she learns the risks of keeping your enemy close...
Because it s no longer clear who is predator and who is prey.
The Dead Seekers is the first book in the Dead Seekers series and a fantastic introduction to this world.
Hendee's stories are so much character driven - that's what I love most about her work her cast feels alive and jumps out of the pages at you.
I loved that our leads are two people who appear to be bound without really knowing for sure what took place in the past or how they connect other than their pasts that keep them moving forward.
I have to admit that I was surprised by the twist - which I love because I hate stories being predictable.. I do however anticipate more intense plotting in the second installment. I enjoyed the sort of innocent until proven guilty theme that carried through this book and how the truth isn't as cut and dry as people would like to believe.
I really enjoyed this book, I loved the story, I love the cast and I love the cover art. Win one for Hendee!
