Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kim and Jaimie are freshman roommates, but their college experience is anything but typical. This is Jaimie's first time in the "real world," away from her large, complicated family and their magics and traditions. It's Kim's chance to escape her high school reputation. But Jaimie quickly realizes what Kim can't see — it's more than just a "reputation." Kim is being pursued by something that feeds on her emotions. And, just like that, reality reshapes itself, as the two girls — along with Jaimie's three cousins — try to capture and rout the viri, or soul demon, who is tracking Kim. This utterly original novel combines humor, darkness, and hope, and will spellbind readers.

Review:

"The concept of the story is interesting and fans of contemporary fantasies will enjoy the magic woven seamlessly into everyday things." Children's Literature

Review:

"The plot is straightforward and a bit predictable, but Hoffman's gift for both snappy dialogue and delineation of character make this breezy read a pleasure for those who like their fantasy slightly shivery and laced with dry humor." VOYA

Review:

"Hoffman treads surprisingly dark territory here, yet she emerges with an optimistic message about resiliency, uniqueness, and the importance of friendship." KLIATT

Review:

"There will be a substantial adult audience for this companion volume; but the combination of romance, mysterious vampirism and college students solving problems on their own will appeal even more strongly to teens." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

From the award-winning author of A Stir of Bones comes the story of two freshman roommates and the "viri" or soul demon who is tracking one of them.

Synopsis:

“A Wildly inventive and surprisingly playful sci-fi thriller.”—Washington Post

 

Roommates Jaimie Locke and Kim Calloway are each looking to find a new life at college. Its Jaimies first time Outside—away from her large, complicated family and their magical traditions—and she wants to learn what nonmagical life is like. Kim is anxious to escape the depression thats been dragging her down since last year so she can make new friends and create the art she loves.

 

But almost as soon as they unpack, Jaimie realizes that Kims depression is different from normal sadness. Something outside of Kim is literally forcing her to be depressed, pursuing and draining her. Just like that, the two girls—along with Jaimes cousins and a Presence named Rugee—try to capture and rout the creature that is following Kim.

 

No one said that college would be easy....
