Necromancers are hated equally as much as they’re feared. They’re ostracised and hunted from towns and villages, finding refuge in uncivilised areas such as the Arcton Mountains. No one is born knowing they’re a necromancer. It isn’t until they’re a teenager or in their early twenties that they learn about their abilities. For some, it’s a skill they look forward to using.
Meikah is stunned to learn she’s a necromancer. The last thing she wants is to be driven from the town she grew up in or separated from her family. The only ones who might be able to help her are a secret organization called the Assassins Of The Dead. A group who hunt down necromancers and destroy the spirits and zombies they summon. The local group seems a mismatched lot and includes nobles, an assassin, a sorcerer, a shapeshifter and a vampire. Meikah has no idea if they can help, but there doesn’t seem to be anyone else she can turn to.

Meikah’s family are templars, as far from necromancers as it’s possible to be. When she learns that not only can she see the dead, but also wield magic, she fears what the future holds. She doesn’t want to become a necromancer, or a dark blade, but there seems to be few choices now available to her. It doesn’t help that people have begun to treat her like she’s an evil necromancer and rumours have started. Nor does she believe Kellan when he says she belongs with the Assassins Of The Dead. They seem to be a mismatched group that include nobles, an assassin, a sorcerer, a shapeshifter and a vampire. Not at all like templars. And if she was to join them, the rumours will never end and her family might actually disown her.
