by Jaclyn Dolamore
Release date: June 2014
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

People are disappearing. Sixteen-year-old Thea Holder hears the rumors, but she can barely make ends meet, let alone worry about strangers who've gone missing. Her mother is cursed with a spell that’s driving her mad, and whenever they touch, Thea is chilled by the magic, too. Thea must make a living for both of them in this sinister city, where danger lurks and greed rules.

Thea spends her nights waitressing at the decadent Telephone Club, attending to the glitzy clientele. But when her best friend, Nan, vanishes, Thea is compelled to find her. She meets Freddy, a young, magnetic patron at the club, and he agrees to help her uncover the city's secrets — even as he hides secrets of his own.

Together, they discover a new side of the city. Unrest is brewing behind closed doors as whispers of a gruesome magic spread. Soon, Thea and Freddy begin to realize nightmarish truths about the city’s dark underbelly, and that time is running out for Nan. And if they’re not careful, the masterminds behind the disappearances will be after them, too.

Jaclyn Dolamore weaves a chilling tale with a touch of magic in this lyrical thriller, where the dead don’t always seem to stay that way.
