Teagan’s wife, Cressidae, is missing. She has left for the Shadow Realm, a kingdom of the dead filled with untold nightmares—and the only place that can save Teagan from a lethal poison that’s killing her slowly. It is ruled by a princess said to make powerful deals with those brave enough to find her, and Cressidae has gone to bargain for Teagan’s life. Cressidae has forgotten one very important thing: no one makes it out on their own.
Despite the risks to her own safety, Teagan is determined to save her wife—and perhaps even herself in the process. The princess of the Shadow Realm, however, doesn’t let mortals roam her territories without opposition. In this thrilling tale inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, Teagan and Cressidae must face both the horrors of the Shadow Realm as well as their own past.

a little teaser from the book:
alt text: What lay under her boots was a stone path that stretched into the distance as far as her eyes could see, but that wasn’t what shocked her. There were bones everywhere. On either side of the path, broken fingers reached forward as if to grab her. Skulls grinned lopsidedly at her; whole skeletons lay curled or sprawled out as if the people had simply stepped off the Bone Way and laid themselves to rest.
