Deep in the north Svalich Woods in the forgotten cemetery of Marescu’s Vale—now known as the Vale of Tears—a ghost has a problem. Islana Marescu is the youngest daughter of Baron Liviaz Marescu. Islana is also a ghost who never died. Brave adventurers liberated her from the curse of a dark necromancer, but now she is captive to the Vale. Descendants of the Marescu family hold the key to her freedom, a family she can no longer trust.
