Silence (The Queen of the Dead #1) - Michelle Sagara

The New York Times bestselling author of The Chronicles of Elantra begins a new Young Adult trilogy for DAW.

It began in the graveyard. Ever since her boyfriend Nathan died in a tragic accident Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery.

There were two others there — Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death…

“It’s rare to find a book as smart and sweet as this one.” — Sarah Rees Brennan, author of The Demon’s Lexicon

“The strength of Silence lies not only in the way Sagara seamlessly integrates the paranormal into the lives of her characters, but in how very real those lives are. Sagara captures the way teenagers feel everything more intensely — love, hate, fear, wonder — and uses that to capture the hearts of her readers.” — Tanya Huff, author of The Enchantment Emporium
