But now the forests have fallen silent. Even the evergreens' branches are bare. Winter crops won't grow, and the threat of starvation looms. And deep in the forest a dark, malevolent will is at work. To face it, Liza will have to find within herself something more powerful than magic alone.Here at last is the sequel to Bones of Faerie, for all those fans of dark fantasy and dystopian adventure who thrilled to Janni Lee Simner's unique vision of a postapocalyptic world infused with magic.

After it is known throughout the town that all born after the war have magic in them the "Afters" are more free to practice their powers in front of the "Befores", those born before the war. Some of them use their gifts to help the town, Liza and Matthew do just this by going on patrols. The point of their patrols is to find shadows, spirits of those who died during the war, and lay them to rest before they reach the town in search of lost loved ones.
