I read the first book of this series back in late December and I was definitely left unsatisfied with the ending, and that being said (although I didn’t want to) pushed forward to read the second book.
In this book the main character, Silas Umber, is now the official Undertaker of Lichport and everything is going relatively well for him. Until his home is being etched with the strange name ‘Arvale’, which is a historic landmark for the Umber family.
Silas is being summoned to Arvale to take his place as rightful Janus of the threshold. When he makes it, he releases a ghost from the depths of the home restricting his return to the land of the living, Lichport.
I am curious to see how this series ends, and – much to my reluctance- I will be requesting the last book from my public library.
