“A triumphant tale of love and loss…The everyday relationships—the love shared by siblings, friends, and romantic partners—shine with even more wonder than the magic…This series is not to be missed.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An incredibly poignant and bittersweet story of love, loss, and family. As always, Shinn’s calm yet powerful voice tugs at readers’ heartstrings…Smoothly written and emotionally charged, this story takes us beyond the horror and carnage normally found in paranormal stories and instead focuses on the humanity of those who straddle the line between the human and immortal worlds—and those who love them.”—RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars, top pick)
