The top 10 best seller

From the New York Times best-selling author of Sorcery of Thorns and An Enchantment of Ravens comes a thrilling new YA fantasy about a teen girl with mythic abilities who must defend her world against restless spirits of the dead. Perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare, Leigh Bardugo, Alexandra Bracken and Holly Black.

The dead of Loraille do not rest.

Artemisia is training to be a Gray Sister, a nun who cleanses the bodies of the deceased so that their souls can pass on. She’d rather deal with the dead than the living, who point and whisper about the odd girl who was once possessed by a violent spirit.

When her convent is attacked by possessed soldiers, Artemisia fights back by awakening an ancient spirit bound to a high saint’s relic. It is a revenant, a malevolent being now whispering in her head. Wielding its extraordinary power almost consumes her in body and soul. But death has come to Loraille, and only a vespertine, a priestess trained to wield a high relic, has a chance of stopping it.

As Artemisia investigates a mystery of saints, secrets and dark magic, an ancient evil is stirring. Can an untrained girl, tormented by the burden of containing the revenant’s devouring power, have any hope of defeating it?

Had potential but didn’t deliver.

This plot had some potential. Girl saves the world and for once didn’t need a man to do it. That’s the only real plus point to it all. It was hard to understand what was going on at the start as the whole idea of saints, relics and revenants wasn’t explained very well and there were points in the book where I really did think “what is going on now”.
The plot really stumbled along at a snails pace and the ending was massively anticlimactic leaving me wondering what the entire point of the novel had been.
The narration is robotic and monotone and didn’t draw you in to the story at all. American narrators can be very monotone in general but this sounded like a bot was reading the story and in places it was like the narrator’s voice had been sped up or edited in some way.
