Overview

Nathan died in the summer before his final year in high school, leaving behind a mother who was devoted to him and a girlfriend he loved. His mother and his girlfriend, Emma, are still alive; Nathan is not. But he wakes in his room—or in the shrine his mother’s made of his room—confused, cold, and unable to interact with anyone or anything he sees. The only clear memory he has is a dream of a shining city, and its glorious queen, but the dream fades, until he once again meets Emma—by the side of his own grave.

Nathan wants life. He wants Emma. He wants warmth, sensation, a sleep that doesn’t leave him confused and aching.

But the cost, to Emma, will be incalculably high—because Emma just might be able to give him what he wants.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Michelle Sagara’s the Queen of the Dead series:

“It's rare to find a book as smart and sweet as this one.”
—Sarah Rees Brennan, author of The Demon's Lexicon

“In Touch, Sagara paints an eerie and original picture of the afterlife as she continues the struggle of Emma and friends to free the dead from eternal imprisonment, while battling the necromancers of the Queen of the Dead. Beautifully written, with characters so real—even the dead ones—they could be any of us, Touch is an exceptional addition to a powerful series. Don’t miss this.”
—Julie Czerneda, author of A Turn of Light

"Brilliant storyteller Sagara heads in a new direction with her Queen of the Dead series. She does an excellent job of breathing life into not only her reluctant heroine, but also the supporting players in this dramatic and spellbinding series starter. There is a haunting beauty to this story of love, loss, and a teenager’s determination to do the right thing. Do not miss out!"
RT Reviews (top pick!)

“For all that this is a novel deeply concerned with loyalty, with healthy friendships, and with human decency, it doesn’t hesitate to wrap cold fingers around your spine and yank when the moment calls for it. Sagara’s characters are believable, flawed, and very human, and make for compelling reading.” —Tor.com
