Praise for Passion Play
“Readers will be impatient for a sequel.” —Publishers Weekly
“Bernobich’s debut is a rich, compulsively readable fantasy.” —Booklist
"Passion Play immediately plunges you into a deep world of past lives and magic...the layers are crafted so masterfully that you can't put the book down to climb out of the story."
—L. A. Banks, author of The Vampire Huntress Legends series
“Passion Play, indeed. Passionate, articulate, clever, this book sings right along. Desperate measures and hope bundled together in a daring adventure. Byzantine politics seldom combine so well with great characters. A marvelous debut novel.” —Patricia Briggs, New York Times bestselling author

Ilse and Raul, voluntarily separated, continue to work to a common purpose and their relationship remains strong in this installment of the River of Souls series.
