Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A supernatural romance about the powers that lie in the shadows of the mind, perfect for fans of Sarah Rees Brennan, Alyxandra Harvey, and Libba Bray.

At the turn of the twentieth century, Spiritualism and séances are all the rage—even in the scholarly town of Cambridge, England. While mediums dupe the grief-stricken, a group of local fringe scientists seeks to bridge the gap to the spirit world by investigating the dark corners of the human mind.

Each running from a shadowed past, Kate, Asher, and Elsie  take refuge within the walls of Summerfield College. But their peace is soon shattered by the discovery of a dead body nearby. Is this the work of a flesh-and-blood villain, or is something otherworldly at play? This unlikely trio must illuminate what the scientists have not, and open a window to secrets taken to the grave—or risk joining the spirit world themselves.

Synopsis:

Kate is an orphan who has made a living by helping a fraudulent medium deceive an eager public. When she inadvertently reveals her employer as an imposter, she is fired, and finds herself in the care of the Thompsons, scholars and wealthy members of the Metaphysical Research Society.

Soon Kate is embroiled in a web of unanswered questions. Her new friend Elsie mysteriously disappears, and upon her return it's clear she is hiding something. People from the surrounding town are going missing. And a rogue member of the Metaphysical Research Society seems to be involved in something much more sinister than the fringe science the group purports to explore. Can Kate and her friends unravel the mystery around them before they become victims themselves?
