A teen girl must face her terrifying destiny in this own-voices YA dark fantasy with an asexual main character.
We all have souls. Some are beautiful gardens, others are frightening dungeons. Soulwalkers — like Kamai and her mother — can journey into other people's souls while they sleep.
But no matter where Kamai visits, she sees the black door. It follows her into every soul, and her mother has told her to never, ever open it.
Kamai has touched the door; it was warm and beating, like it had a pulse. She has put her ear to it; she heard her own name whispered from the other side. And when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable: She opens the door.
A.M. Strickland's imaginative dark fantasy features court intrigue and romance, a main character coming to terms with her asexuality, and twists and turns as a seductive mystery unfolds that endangers not just Kamai's own soul, but the entire kingdom...
A. M. Strickland was a bibliophile who wanted to be an author before she knew what either of those words meant. She shares a home base in Alaska with her husband, her pugs, and her piles and piles of books. She loves traveling, dancing, tattoos, and every shade of teal in existence, but especially the darker ones.
