Martha Wells, author of one of my favorite science fiction series The Murderbot Diaries, returns with an interesting new fantasy. The demon Kai awakes to find himself buried in a watery grave. The book alternates between the past and present as we learn why Kai lives in a human body on our plane and he tries to determine who tried to kill him. And along the way he reminds his enemies why he is the Witch King. It takes a bit for the storylines to start to interconnect but I am pulled into wanting to know more about this new world and the dynamics between the friendships. ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker
