Moira Quirk's chilling narration pairs perfectly with this audiobook's elegant writing and rich setting. Ryn is no stranger to the corpses that are rising and walking the nearby forest, having taken over her father's grave-digging duties since his disappearance. But now the dead have begun leaving the forest, and Ellis, a mapmaker newly arrived in town, joins Ryn in a journey to confront the curse that is causing these strange events.. Quirk voices Ryn with stoicism that gradually wavers with emotion as she learns more about the nature of the dead. Ellis is voiced with a dignity that reflects his background among royalty. His tone gains fervor as his mysterious past is slowly unveiled. Quirk's impeccable pacing immerses listeners in a truly beautiful story.
