Summary (from Goodreads):
“For fans of Holly Black and Nova Ren Suma, a gripping, hauntingly atmospheric novel about murder, revenge, and a world where monsters—human and otherwise—lurk at the fringes.
When seventeen-year-old Breezy Lin wakes up in a shallow grave one year after her death, she doesn’t remember who killed her or why. All she knows is that she’s somehow conscious—and not only that, she’s able to sense who around her is hiding a murderous past. In life, Breezy was always drawn to the elegance of the universe and the mystery of the stars. Now she must set out to find answers and discover what is to become of her in the gritty, dangerous world to which she now belongs—where killers hide in plain sight and a sinister cult is hunting for strange creatures like her. What she finds is at once empowering, redemptive, and dangerous.
Tense, complex, and wholly engaging, Shallow Graves is a stunning first novel from Kali Wallace.”
I can’t say much about this book because (a) it makes me ramble like a crazy person and (b) I don’t want to spoil anything about it for you.
But oh you guys, I love this book. It’s creepy and clever and kept me guessing the entire time. Like Breezy, I was very curious about what caused her to come back from the dead and the repeated predictions that she could turn evil completely creeped me out.
I’m hoping this is the first book in a series but so far, unfortunately, there’s no sign of a followup. (This can’t be the end of Breezy, right? Please say no.)
Either way, I am very excited to see what Kali Wallace writes next and I want to read her backlist.
