In a world of magic and games, Bastion Branden Griffon discovers his men are under attack from an impossible creature, a ghost. Thanks to the art of necromancy, ghosts are widely known to be a thing of myth, until one starts killing his men. Branden enlists an old friend, a necromancer, to help solve the mystery of the White Lady of the Keep.
They find themselves investigating a century old death, searching for a necromancer who should be dead himself, and playing with forces far beyond their control. And, he's doing it all for a woman who shouldn't exist.
