So, everyone's heard of The Phantom Prom Date, or The Girl on the Side of the Road. She's distinct from Chicago's Resurrection Mary in that she can pop up just about anywhere, while poor Mary seems to be bound to the area around Resurrection Cemetery (which I have passed, and one day want to stop at...in daylight, though!).
Meet Rose. This is her story.
Seanan McGuire is one of my favorite writers, and her October Daye and InCryptid Series are two of my very favorite urban fantasy pleasures, so I was really looking forward to this book. I wasn't disappointed. Sometimes it can be a fine line between creepy and horror but Seanan treads it well.
I would, however, love to know where the Healys and the Prices come into this world. They're mentioned a few times. And I'd also love to know if Laura Moorhead is going to be showing up in future stories, as she's both a character and an "expert" in the chapter headings.
Anyway, if you like ghost stories, grab this book and prepare for some shivers....
