Cliona Desmond wants a normal life, but when your family motto is "Death is a Gift", what you want isn't always possible. The death of her banshee aunt forces Cliona into a world she barely recognises, a world she's dreaded since the night her aunt came to take her father away. Her mother hates banshees, but the only possibility of escape is remote and involves a love more powerful than a banshee's calling. Except Cliona's already in love with somebody who could never love her back, somebody who has a good reason to hate a banshee, and her responsibilities ring loud and clear, no matter how hard her loved ones try to pull her back to her old life. Going against the banshee code can have tragic consequences, but it's hard for an eighteen-year-old to say goodbye to all of her hopes and dreams. The biggest lesson left to learn is which is more powerful - love or death?
