A necromancer brings her back to life as a wraith with the authority of Ambassador Valn from her home country of Talmir. He wants her to continue to be of service to Talmir by becoming a spy. Naya has great difficulty accepting her circumstances until she meets Corten, another wraith, who helps her learn about her new powers.

Twice Dead

By: Caitlin Seal

Death is only the beginning.

Naya Garth's first solo mission for her merchant father goes horribly awry when she wakes up undead in a foreign city. 

Resurrected in order to spy for her country on the orders of the mysterious Ambassador Valn, Naya must embrace an existence her culture despises in order to complete her missions. Assuming the face and persona of a servant to the necromancer who raised her from the dead, she struggles to adapt to her spectral state while completing a crash course in spycraft – and developing the sneaking suspicion that she was brought back wrong . . .

Embroiled in politics, kidnappings, murder, intrigue, and an entirely unexpected romance, Naya will need every ounce of her wits to escape a fate worse than death. This imaginative debut is perfect for fans of Graceling and Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

Twice Dead is book #1 in the Necromancer's Song series.
