Publisher's Summary

A novel of violent magic, intrigue, and statecraft.
Ghosts in the Yew is the story of four people who are banished beyond the edge of the map, to a land of gnarled forests, ancient magic, and the site of a terrible murder. Their struggles to survive will put them at odds with their families, their nation, and the very powers that shaped the world.
Ghosts in the Yew is the first book in Blake's Vesteal series. It invites the listener as follows:
The dark forest hid them from their destroyers. The matriarch of the forest wept a century at their murder. The priests rewrote the songs and rhymes until the world forgot them, and the conquerors abandoned their watch. But then it happened that the Zoviyan Empire - bloated by its centuries of glut - sent the last thing it should have into the trees. Ghosts forget nothing, and when the blood of their enemy walked beneath them, they woke, their revenge at hand.

Epic...hard starter but pays in the end.

This is a long book but any good epic is, it took some time to become involved in the story and i almost gave up...i'm glad i didn't. For those with patience it's worth the credit or even cash purchase, for those with no patience move on...this is the kind of book that requires an investment of time on the reader's part before it comes together...for me anyway.

Wonderful story

Complex and intriguing, while the story was a little slow getting started the characters grew and grew on me until I was completely intrigued with both them and the story they are involved in.
The narration was unique. It was the first time I have heard a narration using different people for each of the main characters. I thought this was very well done and it added richness to the story.
