Songs of Bone
In a world steeped in shadows and mystery, Asher Norwood, a sin eater tasked with combating dark magic, finds himself entangled in a perilous quest. When a mysterious client presents him with a contract, Asher, accompanied by his cunning raven partner Aethon, and the former pirate Rane Moxley, sets sail to confront a malevolent ghost ship that plagues the seas, bringing doom to all in its wake.
Their path is fraught with danger as they navigate the fragile peace between humans and the saltmer—an enigmatic race of creatures who possess their own frightful power over the sea. To complete their contract, they unite with unlikely allies, each harboring their own motives for joining the mission. As they traverse the murky barrier between the realms of the living and the dead, the boundaries between friend and foe begin to blur.

THE SIN EATER WORLD
In the world of Eyora, magic is intertwined with nature; one cannot exist without the other. Unfortunately, this magic occasionally becomes corrupted, leading to the rise of monsters both physical and spiritual. In response to this, the sin eater guild was established; a group of mages that work tirelessly to strike down dark magic wherever it arises.
Follow Asher on his journey to enchanted forests, remote mountains, monster-laden seas, and fantastic cities. A Season of Ravens is a collection of eight stories that combine to make the first novel of the Sin Eater Tales series.
