Senior year. For most high school students, it’s something to celebrate. For Ella, it’s a reminder of what she’s lost. A car accident cut short the life of her brother Jack before he made it that far. Now her fear of outgrowing her big brother is putting her at odds with everyone. And it’s stirring up some really terrible dreams.
No one seems to understand what Ella is going through, not her parents or her best friends, or her favorite art teacher. The only person on her side is PhiTau, and Ella doesn’t even know he exists.
As a tender in the realm of the Dream Lord, PhiTau’s job is to take care of Ella’s dreams. But when he crosses the line from caring to meddling, he causes Ella to do what she fears most-forget.
To repair the broken pieces of Ella’s memory, PhiTau will need help from two gods and the one person who knows Ella better than he does. But saving Ella’s memory may require PhiTau to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Nothing’s Ever Lost
If you think the dead have nothing left to lose, you’re wrong.
When a trip to the beach plunges wildly off course, Jack and Anna find themselves on an adventure through the afterlife. It’s not the summer beach trip they’d hoped for, but there is a lot of sand. And at least they have each other…for now.
Still, nothing in the afterlife is quite what it seems. Danger lurks behind every art installation, telephone booth, and smiling face. If they just stick together they might be okay, but the secret Anna is carrying could blow their friendship apart—unless she makes an impossible choice.
Eric just wants to do his job as an EMT. He’s mostly recovered from the freak accident that put him in the hospital. There’s just one thing still bothering him–the ghosts. At least, he thinks they’re ghosts. They only seem to show up when one of his patients is close to death.
In Eric’s case, “close to Death” is more than a figure of speech. The Reaper is not thrilled about Eric’s newfound abilities. Humans aren’t even supposed to see the souls of the nearly departed. They’re certainly not supposed to talk to them. Where did Eric get this inhuman power? Most importantly, can Death put a stop to it before bureaucracy gets involved? If they don’t solve the mystery quickly Eric might not be the only one who has to pay a price.
