Overview

NATHAN
Four months ago, Nathan had everything he wanted in life: he had Emma.

Three months ago, he died.

Death hasn’t been easy. The only people who can see the dead are Necromancers and their Queen. And you don’t want to piss off the Queen of the Dead. She’s brilliant light and fire, and if there’s no actual hell, she can make a personal one, just for you.

But all she seems to want for Nathan is to send him home — where he can see the people he loved, even if they can’t see him. He doesn’t know why. He doesn’t care. If he goes home, he can finally see…

EMMA
Four months ago, Emma was in love with Nathan.

Three months ago, he died.

One month ago, Emma began to see the dead. They look exactly the way they appeared before they died; she knows. She’s seen her father. She’s even argued with him.

Seeing the dead has made her life vastly more complicated. People want to kill her. People want to kidnap her and force her to truly become a Necromancer. People want to kill her friends, just because they know her.

But even if she could get rid of this strange power, she wouldn’t, because if it’s gone, she’ll never see Nathan again…

But the Queen of the Dead has plans of her own, for both Nathan and Emma.

Praise

Praise for Michelle Sagara’s the Queen of the Dead series:

“It’s rare to find a book as smart and sweet as this one.”
—Sarah Rees Brennan, author of The Demon’s Lexicon

“In Touch, Sagara paints an eerie and original picture of the afterlife as she continues the struggle of Emma and friends to free the dead from eternal imprisonment, while battling the necromancers of the Queen of the Dead. Beautifully written, with characters so real—even the dead ones—they could be any of us, Touch is an exceptional addition to a powerful series. Don’t miss this.”
—Julie Czerneda, author of A Turn of Light

“Brilliant storyteller Sagara heads in a new direction with her Queen of the Dead series. She does an excellent job of breathing life into not only her reluctant heroine, but also the supporting players in this dramatic and spellbinding series starter. There is a haunting beauty to this story of love, loss, and a teenager’s determination to do the right thing. Do not miss out!”
RT Reviews (top pick!)

“For all that this is a novel deeply concerned with loyalty, with healthy friendships, and with human decency, it doesn’t hesitate to wrap cold fingers around your spine and yank when the moment calls for it. Sagara’s characters are believable, flawed, and very human, and make for compelling reading.” —Tor.com
