The power of waking dead things…and the fear of being caught!
In Ravyn’s world anyone with paranormal abilities lives in fear of the Inquisition discovering their secrets. Those captured are burned – not at the stake, but a process in which the “witch” is subjected to a medical process of surgery and chemical control to remove the paranormal ability.
Welcome to the world of Dead Things.
Ordinary high school teen worried about getting her driver’s license, dates and passing classes. Oh, and dead things.
Sometimes dead things wake up. It happened to her Nana, branded witch and necromancer by the Inquisition. Now Inquisitor Lockwood shows up in town, checking if Ravyn inherited the curse.
And dead things wake up. If Lockwood finds out, Ravyn could burn.
Dead things in high school? Bad. At college? Deadly!
Ravyn Washington’s secret? She wakes dead things. If the Inquisition finds out she could burn. She thought she left that all behind her after high school. Not quite. Haunted in her dreams, Ravyn’s curse spreads to her friends when their dream research project turns into a nightmare.
Not safe awake. Not safe asleep!
Ravyn Washington grew up and woke dead things. A witch, like her grandmother and a target for the Inquisition.
In high school she feared the Inquisition discovering her secret and burning her – surgically and chemically frying her brain to remove her abilities the way they did with her grandmother.
In college, her abilities became a living nightmare that threatened her friends and exposed her to the Inquisition.
They didn’t burn her, they recruited her. And now they want her back.
In Bramson Bay, Oregon, dead things stir and Ravyn must put them down.
