Leigh Bardugo meets The Sixth Sense in this story of one girl’s perilous journey to restore a lost order.
Imagine you live with your aunt, who hates you so much she’s going to sell you into a dreadful apprenticeship. Imagine you run away before that can happen. Imagine that you can see ghosts—and talk with the dead. People like you are feared, even shunned.
Now imagine…the first people you encounter after your escape are a mysterious stranger and a ghost boy, who seem to need you desperately—though you don’t understand who they are or exactly what they want you to do. So you set off on a treacherous journey, with only a ghost dog for company. And you find that what lies before you is a task so monumental that it could change the world.
This book was pitched as Leigh Bardugo meets Sixth Sense, I’m dead.
And that cover! I can already see the hype that will grow around this baby when release date approaches. I love me a good tale about a girl left to her own devices. People are so insanely imaginative, don’t you think? Books like this one are why bloggers and fangirls loose their minds while waiting for release. And there is mention of a ghost dog?! Any fluffy companion is a companion I want in a book. Yes please!
