Troubled young Fawn Bluefield seeks a life beyond her family’s farm. But en route to the city, she encounters a patrol of Lakewalkers, nomadic soldier–sorcerers from the northern woodlands. Feared necromancers armed with mysterious knives made of human bone, they wage a secret, ongoing war against the scourge of the "malices," immortal entities that draw the life out of their victims, enslaving human and animal alike.
It is Dag—a Lakewalker patroller weighed down by past sorrows and onerous present responsibilities—who must come to Fawn’s aid when she is taken captive by a malice. They prevail at a devastating cost—unexpectedly binding their fates as they embark upon a remarkable journey into danger and delight, prejudice and partnership . . . and perhaps even love.

I love how internal Fawn and Dag's journey together really is; there are so many outside obstacles for them to overcome, but the biggest changes that they each experience have to do with how they mature, deal with pain, and make room in their lives for the unexpected love that they encounter.
While I love how quickly I can read this in (digital) print, I love the way Bernadette Dunne, the woman who narrates the audiobooks, reads the stories. No matter how you take it in, this series is a treat for the eyes and the ears.more
