Rohan is desperate to see his dead wife again, and Altemus claims to know how to resurrect her. But when Altemus tries to kill Rohan instead, the experience gives Rohan Unexpected powers over the dead.
I liked the characters in this book, even though in the beginning Rohan’s sadness and desperation led him away from his basic values. While he regained them in the course of the book, neither he nor Artemis were portrayed in any great depth. The structure of the afterlife could have used a little more explanation as well. The book had a satisfactory ending that left room for sequels, and was overall an enjoyable read.
