Artemesia is more than happy to be a Gray sister and help in their vital work to send the spirits of the dead to the other side before they can become revenants and need to be exorcised. She has the Sight, so she can not only see the spirits, but also hear them all. The most dangerous spirits have been confined in various relics, but Artemesia is near when an extremely powerful relic is broken and now she is sharing her body, wrestling for control, with that spirit – she is possessed, but in control. But that possession drags her to the attention of those who control her world and have ulterior motives for one who proves to be so powerful. 

Rogerson has written a very creepy horror book that will be sure to find a following among those who like their books with that edge of danger. Perfect for fans of Beth Revis’ Give the Dark My Love.
