The Death Singer
The moving heroine’s journey of a young woman with a unique magical gift
In THE DEATH SINGER, Alexander Paul creates an atmospheric, dark, and grim fantasy world that enjoys great popularity, not least because of novelists like Georg R. R. Martin. As the story unfolds, a young woman discovers her unique magical talent – to bring death with her singing.
From an early age, Aurora Pine has had to learn what it means to be different. When her mother is decried as a witch, she and Aurora are chased from the village. In the woods, her Mom teaches her the magic of singing but the powerful songs are too big for Aurora’s voice. After her mother is ambushed and killed, she has to fend for herself by begging. And then, finally, the tide is turning: She is accepted into the religious Order of the Gentle Sisters and they offer her to serve in a division of the order only a few people know exists – the House Mortem.
