Jenna Burtenshaw’s dark fantasy trilogy The Secrets of Wintercraft comes to a pulse-pounding conclusion with YA dystopian novel Winterveil.

Teen Kate Winters and her powers are unique. She alone can understand Wintercraft, a book of ancient secrets.

In Winterveil, the veil between the living and the dead is crumbling, and only Kate can stop it. The pull of the veil is powerful, and part of Kate wants to let it fall, allowing the dead overrun the living. Her best friend Edgar Rill urges Kate to save the world of the living. But Silas Dane can influence Kate too. Silas, a merciless villain, has the potential to behave honorably—if he chooses.

A great pick for fans of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Legend.
                         
The dead are restless. The veil between the living and the dead is weakening. The graveyard city of Fume is over-run by ghosts.

And Kate Winters—the one person powerful enough to bring life and death back into balance—has been captured by an ancient and power-hungry enemy.

Kate is returning to home to Albion just as it reaches the brink of utter chaos. But she isn't there to save it. She's there to obliterate it. Caught in a trap laid by the most powerful sorceress in the world, Kate will be the catalyst for the final destruction of the veil. And the dead will swarm the living.

Silas Dane is following her. Though he is half-dead himself—and may be a murderer and a disgraced warrior—he will not let Albion down in its hour of need. Together he and Kate will turn to the dark secrets of her family's legacy: the book of Wintercraft.

Those who wish to see the dark, it's time to pay the price.
