A woman posing as a medium who can channel the spirit world comes face to face with the truth in this short historical fantasy by Hugo Award–winning author Nghi Vo.

The Fogg River Seminary, a girls’ school in a small Illinois town, is supposed to be just another stop on Maryse and Vasyl’s endless travels. They’ve made lucrative use of Maryse’s “foreign” looks in their melodramatic séance act—and an act is all it is. Then, during their performance, a blizzard sweeps in and cuts them off from town completely. In the freezing halls, there’s a voice speaking the secrets of the dead, and Maryse has no choice but to listen…because this time, the voice is real.


Nghi Vo is the Hugo Award–winning author of the Singing Hills Cycle (The Empress of Salt and Fortune, When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain, and Into the Riverlands), as well as the acclaimed novels The Chosen and the Beautiful and Siren Queen.

REVIEW:
I'm not usually a fan of ghost stories or mystics and psychics, but this one was neat. It had this magic element that made it quite interesting. I got a real sense of what the author writes like as well, and being my introduction to her it left me wanting to read more.

3.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
