This book was so fun! I read it a few weeks ago and found this art at the museum just seemed to fit.

Anora can see the dead and trying to hide this fact at her new academy is proving difficult. As there are weird happenings in this town and a curfew at night due to spirits and such.

Sky, the class hottie, is helping her get acclimated to her new school but also he’s keeping an eye on her.

This was an interesting reimagining of Eurydice with the gold coins and souls.

There is a whole secret Order that now has her under watch since odd things are happening (outside their normal odd) and she’s new.

I’m very curious to see where this book goes into book #2 due to the ending.

This is a YA book and it has a slow, clean burn. 

❓ Do you read paranormal type books? Or do you believe in ghosts?

Thank you read_bloom and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

From the brilliant mind of A Touch of Darkness’s bestselling author Scarlett St. Clair comes a YA crossover in a darkly unique fantasy world.

Anora Silby can see the dead and turn spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secret as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school. After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.

Hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girl on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate ends up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, the mistrust of her mother, the attention of gorgeous and enigmatic Shy, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough. Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth—and they want Anora and her powers for themselves.
