I’m so excited.
The official long blurb for the book follows:
Sixteen-year-old Sarah Parker’s healing touch can bring beings back to life, provided they haven’t crossed over. Until now she’s managed to keep her Gift a secret, but somebody seems determined to expose her and get her back into St. Mary’s Orphanage. Four years ago, Sarah was an orphan at St.Mary’s who’d lost hope of ever being adopted and faced the gruesome Ludus until Ida showed up. She’s lived a dream life since then but Sarah senses something is amiss. She has pretty much settled into her “new life” when cracks appear in her comfort zone. The last thing Sarah wants is to return to St. Mary’s.
When Marcus David, her boyfriend, is accused of murdering a student and her foster mom Ida is attacked shortly thereafter, Sarah’s deepest fears materialize. She loses Ida and Marcus in one breath and returns to St. Mary’s. There’s no escaping the Ludus and the wrath of her newfound enemies. As Sarah readjusts to St. Mary’s, she learns the orphanage holds crucial secrets to her past.
