Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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....

Synopsis:

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