Synopsis from Goodreads: Naya, the daughter of a sea merchant captain, nervously undertakes her first solo trading mission in the necromancer-friendly country bordering her homeland of Talmir. Unfortunately, she never even makes it to the meeting. She's struck down in the streets of Ceramor. Murdered. But death is not the end for Naya. She awakens to realize she's become an abomination--a wraith, a ghostly creature bound by runes to the bones of her former corpse. She's been resurrected in order to become a spy for her country. Reluctantly, she assumes the face and persona of a servant girl named Blue. She never intended to become embroiled in political plots, kidnapping, and murder. Or to fall in love with the young man and former necromancer she is destined to betray.

My Review: The synopsis had great potential and I was excited to read it. Unfortunately the book did not live up to my hopes. The story was slow and felt as though the author was world building more than plotting. None of the characters were fully developed and I just couldn’t connect with any of them. All of that made for a rather boring read.

*I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
