Apprentice Reaper Xavier Devouh has lost his body. But his soul is still here... Inside his twin.
For the five kingdoms of Nirus, death is managed by the knights of Grim: the Reapers. When you die, your NecroSeam (the thread stitching your soul to your body) must be reaped to begin your transition into the afterlife. But Xavier never had his Seam reaped. He only remembers being thrown off a cliff before waking inside his brother. But how did this happen? Is his body still alive? And who is the ashen-haired princess from his broken memories?
Desperate to exist again, Xavier and his brother journey to the other kingdoms to find his missing body and reverse his bizarre curse. But they aren't the only ones looking for Xavier, and they're not all here to help. As he uncovers the mystery behind his curse, Xavier learns the prophecy surrounding them will only make things worse. If it doesn't kill them first.
Willow of Ashes is the first installment of the COMPLETED 5-book saga, the award-winning NecroSeam Chronicles. Fans of Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn will love this epic adventure!

PRINCESS OF GRIM
NecroSeam Chronicles | Prequel
A fun bonus story!
Take a little peek into what Willow and the twins' childhoods was like before their adventure began in Willow of Ashes, and how they first met!
Princess Willow Ember is the young heiress to Grim’s throne. In her underground home of cold caverns, it will one day be her duty to rule this Kingdom of Death and command her Reaper knights to guide all souls of the dead down to her caverns for their afterlife. But for now, she must strengthen her weak magic and sharpen her skills with the scythe if she hopes to be respected in Grim. As a child born of two realms, Death and Dream, some question her right to rule. Unexpectedly, one of her biggest supporters is a new Reaper-in-training boy with different colored eyes.
Xavier and his twin brother Alex didn’t know they would be dining with the royal family of Grim on their first day of moving within the palace grounds. And Xavier wasn’t prepared to meet an enchanting young Death Princess, let alone one with six elements of magic. He and his brother would be lucky to have even one whole element, but the twins’ abilities to raise the dead had been split at birth. Xavier can only use his magic on deceased souls. Alex can only resurrect decaying corpses. Halved magic has never been seen in the five realms, and the twins are considered crippled in the magic community when separated. Together, though, Willow and the twins may be capable of anything.
But they aren’t prepared for an assassin trapped in the Dream realm for 500 years who has sworn vengeance on the royal families of Death and Dream. And with an ancient, poisonous magic, he won’t leave any souls alive.
