"A rewarding and highly literate novel." -The New York Review of Science Fiction

Isobel Linden would like to forget her tragic past, but the past has followed her all the way to Bolivia. When the former violin prodigy shatters a statue of the demon Tio, she receives a visit from Death himself. Trouble is, she's seen Death before. She can't outrun him forever.

Praise for Requiem in La Paz

"Jonna Gjevre writes complex, elegant fantasy with a beguiling voice. Requiem in La Paz is a dark and lyrical tale. Isobel Linden is a musical prodigy with a very unusual instrument, a tragic past, and a disturbing secret. Trust me when I tell you that you want to read this book." -Kelly McCullough, author of the WebMage and Fallen Blade series

"[Gjevre is] an accomplished prose stylist whose language invariably rises to the occasion, whether she's depicting the beauty of a well-played concerto or the horror of an encounter with Death personified." -The New York Review of Science Fiction
