Lionhearted heroine you’ll root for from page one? Check. Dark academia vibes? Check. Cheeky romantic banter that will make you blush? Check, check and CHECK. Read this gripping, ridiculously clever tale only if you’re fully prepared to be haunted by its revelations about life and death while also swooning at the idea of flirting with someone in an open grave — Emma Lord, New York Times bestselling author
A fast-paced, utterly engrossing tale of mystery, romance, and cadavers…I grinned, I gasped, I cried and ended this book breathless and craving more — Alwyn Hamilton, New York Times bestselling author
Diabolically delightful. A love story, a murder mystery, and a horror novel bound up together in ghoulish stitches — Maureen Johnson, New York Times bestselling author
Schwartz’s magical novel is at once gripping and tender, and the intricate plot is engrossing as the reader tries to solve the mystery. She doesn’t miss a beat in either the characterization or action, scattering clues with a delicate, precise hand. This is, in the end, the story of the anatomy of the human heart ― Booklist (starred review)
