Overview

One morning the people of the North woke up and the people of the South were gone. That�s the first thing every child learns on the colony world of Jigsaw. But for one girl, knowing about The Disappearance is not enough. Hawkeye wants to know why.

That's why she spent half her life researching The Disappearance. And that's also why eight Neighbors show up on her doorstep, demanding that she accompany them into the Forbidden Cities ruled by the Southern gods � to speak with the Spirits of Glory. Everyone thinks Hawkeye is an expert on Neighbors, these almost-humans who move, talk, and think as if they were born inside one of the Time Fractures. But she can't imagine what they want to ask the ghosts of their ancestors, or why they need her to go along. The Southern gods caused every human inhabitant of the Southern cities to disappear overnight - what else might they do?

But the Northern gods say Hawkeye should go � and her curiosity won't let her refuse, even though she's going into more danger than she can imagine. Pain and puzzlement wait along the broken interstate, along with scavengers who want to kill them all. Hawkeye's questions only generate more questions as they move farther and farther into the South, right into the heart of the Disappearance, until Hawkeye's questions have all been answered.

Even the ones she was afraid to ask.

Cubicle Blindness Reviews
[Hawkeye] is one of the strongest and most admirable female lead characters I have read about. There is no way that anybody could figure out what was going to happen next in this one, no way you can guess the ending. There is magic, time fractures, intelligent animals, ghosts, Gods and the mystery that they have set out to solve. I can tell you right now you have never and will never read a story like this one out there. I dare you to try to find one. Then come back and tell me about it!

Ella Press's Reviews
Spirits of Glory is a short but well crafted novel, with a lot of elements to put together in the end, keeping you hooked to the story. I really liked how Emily built this new world -Jigsaw- and how she presented us with its history and background, little by little, making us want more.

The storyline was fantastic. I knew it was going to be different from page one, but it was so unique. I loved reading about the Neighbours, as well as discovering their secrets along with Hawkeye, I loved traveling to all these places which were fascinating and thrilling as well as damn right scary. The pace of the story was perfect and never let me get bored - and Devenport's writing is just magical, it literally took my breath away at places.

The story is very well-written, and I was thrilled to find my expectations shattered repeatedly. Every time I thought I knew where the story was taking me, I was whipped around a blind curve in a completely unexpected direction. I love it when that happens!
