Ian Fossor is last in a long line of Gravediggers. It’s his family’s job to bury the dead and to help settle the worries that linger beyond the grave. But Ian doesn’t want to help the dead: he wants to be a Healer and help the living. Such a wish is, of course, selfish and impossible. Just as Ian’s friend, Fiona, convinces him to talk to his father, they’re captured by a coven of Weavers, dark magic witches who want only two things: to escape the murky woods where they’ve been banished, and to raise the dead and shift the balance of power back to themselves.
