Living With Ghosts by Kari Sperring

Graciel is a failed assassin priest and spy who doesn't accept his abilities. The ghostly shadows around him and even the sorceress who rules him can't be ignored by him. Thiercelin wishes he had his wife's love though she is devoted to the city of Merafi and the ruler. In this ancient city you can't always get what you want. In the city of Merafi their safety relied on a pact sealed by the blood between the land's first king and the land's elemental forces. When the city should be protected to the power of elementals it isn't because a sorceress and a prince have broken the pact. Terror and destruction are to come but the Merafiens don't believe in the elemental powers and are blind to the danger to come. Find out what happens when you jump into this book!

This book had a very slow beginning but if you are into these kind of books it picks up after a while. If you don't like to read a big book that doesn't pull you in, then this is not for you. Some parts were confusing but once you read the whole book you get it. Detail I believe is a big thing in this book. This is a good book to read on a bad day, though of course it depends on the person. Fantasy either like them or dislike them.

There were some parts where depends on the maturity of the reader. Also I recommend adult guidance.
