Do you know what will happen to you when you die?
And so does everyone else in I Am a Beetle thanks to a strange process known as Preincarnation. Society is split into a new caste system based upon what animal you become after you die. At the top are the near-mythical Falcons, at the bottommaking up most of the populationare the Beetles. Alex is a Beetle.
As if that wasnt strange enough, Alex begins to see things that cant exactly be explained; a marketplace explosion that never happened, shadowy dream figures and something like tentacles creeping around his windowsill.
No one seems to believe Alex except for his best friend Roger, a Badger who doesnt seem to fit in. That is, until Roger disappears with barely a trace.
In a world where Alex can barely believe what he sees, is there anyone he can trust?
