When the seas rose, the monsters rose with them. | A Summer 2018 B&N Press Presents pick.
The survivors climbed while the city around them drowned, stranding those who remained in the towers. But with the floods came the Mara, nightmarish monsters hungry for human life.
The only way to survive was to shut their inner lives down. No more hope. No more dreams. The Towers of Refuge held the balance, raising generation after generation of drones to live out their days carefully observing the regulations designed to keep them safe.
Cole doesn't know why the Mara spared her when she first failed to obey as a new-grown, devouring only her dreams and leaving what remained of her to live each day in fear of a second, final failure. But a bratty, rule-breaking ghost haunts her, tempting her to disobedience, and things only get worse when a charismatic rebel breaks into her isolated existence and sets her on a path that exposes the dark secret at the heart of her decaying homeland.
Nothing and no one is as they seem, and Cole's ghost isn't the only one hiding things. To survive, she'll have to untangle the lies, take back her choices, and find the power to stop the dying before the nightmares eat her alive.
A not-quite-alive girl and her not-quite-dead ghost discover trusted authorities lie, allies have their own agendas and even the monsters wear masks in a YA dystopian dark fantasy suitable for ages 14 and up.
Monsters of Verity meet The Phantom of the Opera and The Masque of the Red Death in a creepy, slow-burn, broken story of learning how to overcome. Perfect for those who love:
ghosts & creatures of myth
devious & dazzling revolutionaries
repressive regimes & glittering gothic excess
girls finding their voices & taking back their choices
Crossover appeal for fans of contemporary fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal thriller/PNR, horror, science fantasy/dystopian fantasy, and gothic subgenres. Paperbacks launch July 6; hardcover and audiobook editions coming soon.
