Roger can cross over to the land of the dead and speak with them. His brutish uncle uses Roger's gift to rip off gullible women. A change in fortune and Roger ends up at Court, where the beautiful, is she/isn't she evil queen uses Roger's gift in an attempt to win a war. Just when things are at their worst for the queen Roger escapes, in pursuits of the beautiful, but immoral and stupid, Lady Cecilia, accompanied by the plain but clever and worthy kitchen maid, Maggie.
About two pages from the end I noticed things were being set up for a sequel.
The plot is ho-hum, the world is well developed but the characters are unappealing. Roger is unpleasant and whining, Cecilia is unpleasant and brainless, the queen is unpleasant and devious. No-one evinced any sympathy from me, and I doubt if I could be bothered readingf the next book.
