Bod has been marked by an assassin who has killed the rest of his family, and has found sanctuary in an unusual place: A graveyard. There he is raised by the ghosts of the people buried there, learning about life from those who are already dead. But as he is marked, he must live with the knowledge that the one who killed his family is still out there, and may want to finish what her started and kill him too.


“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” Stephen King.
