Yasmin Stoker is a ghost tour guide who spends her days showing tourists around Shoregrave’s haunted hotspots. She also happens to be a wraith who spends her nights hunting Revenants, newly-risen flesh-eating vampires. On one of her regular hunts, she witnesses a mysterious ghostly girl pulling the body of a teenage boy underground. Who and what is this girl, and why is she attacking men around the city? Yasmin investigates, but it quickly becomes clear that somebody wants to keep her from finding the killer and they’ll do anything–including ambushing her with ghouls and cacodaemons–to stop her.

With only a persistent private eye and a taciturn vampire (one of the Immaculate, no less) to help her, Yasmin must deal with fanatical necromancers, crazed ghosts, and a sexy history teacher in her quest to solve the mystery. And along the way she uncovers some heartbreaking truths about her own existence.

I stared at the report, an autopsy report from Lost Anchorage coroner’s office, complete with detailed photographs of the dead girl’s post-mortem. Images showing the gaping, ragged hole in her chest in perfect clarity. The broken ribs and torn muscle. The black, bloody void where her heart should be.

My stomach flipped. Not nausea. I’d lived too long to be shocked by the brutality humans inflicted on each other. But a deep-rooted, abject horror. Utter revulsion that her heart had been taken. The heart is a powerful organ, so much more than the muscular pump doctors would have you believe. It is the seat of emotion, the root of compassion and love. The center of all that makes a mortal a human being. My head swam with the names of all the occult rituals which could be performed with a human heart.

“The killer takes their hearts,” I said. Saying the words aloud made it sound even worse. Ethan nodded. “The marks on Joanne’s wrists and ankles were consistent with rope burns, someone struggling against restraints. She was alive when he did that.”
