From official release/information:
In Bridge of Souls, Fiona McIntosh brings to an end her Quickening series. Wyl Thirsk has been curse or blessed with Myrren's gift, depending on your point of view, and it allows him, when killed, to take over the body of his killer. Wyl, at the start of book three, is in the body of his sister Ylena and heading for Briavel to hopefully be of assistance to Queen Valentyna. Wyl's friend Aremys Farrow is in the Razors with King Cailech trying to find Wyl's friends Gueryn and Lothryn, avoid contact with the King's wizard Rashlyn, and trying to get back to Wyl to help overthrow King Celimus. Fynch is in the Thicket learning to manage the powers ceded to him by Elysius, Myrren's father. Queen Valentyna is preparing to marry King Celimus of Morgravia to avoid his invasion of her lands. And Elspeth and Crys are planning to search for Lothryn and go to Morgravia to undermine Celimus control of the Legion. There's a lot of threads to follow and more than enough action and adventure to keep a reader interested as we move to the conclusion of this tale.
