Whether it’s a curse, or a blessing, or an ability, the fact remains that whenever Roger is injured or in enough pain he crosses over to the land of the dead. Once there, there are rules. Only the newly dead will talk, for example, and nothing will raise the longer dead from their tranquility. There are rules in the land of the living as well, rules which would have Roger hanged for witchcraft if he was ever caught. But refusing to cross over isn’t an option. His uncle depends on Roger to hide under the table in their fairground act, listen to the recently bereaved asking questions of their dear departed, and then cross over to find the answers. It’s a hard way of life, made all the harder as his uncle’s fists usually provide the trigger for Roger to cross over. It’s not the only way of life, though, and when Roger sees a chance to escape he fights for it—little knowing that love, loss, shocking revelations and, ultimately, war lie ahead of him.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Poofy | 11/23/2013

    " It was a fun book te read, not too heavy, not too soft. The author almost created two credible worlds. The storyline is a bit thin, but at the end gains some strength. The last pages don't give you the impression that it's a great cliffhanger, but I'm curious about the next part. "

    " Hmmm, not sure what I think about this one. It was captivatingly written. I picked it up because of the title, not knowing how the story would unfold. I may read another of her books, just to compare. "

    " I was not that impressed with this book. I never liked Roger and the story was lacking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Victoria | 8/5/2012

    " All I can say is that this was a very sad and melancholy book. It lacked any humor or a truly happy ending that would persuade me to ever read it again. I suppose books like these need to be written in order to show how war and greed are not pretty stories to be reveled in, but sad. "
