Overview

A dark, contemporary interpretation of the Persephone myth for fans of The Invisible Life of Addie Larue and The Sandman.

Death stole Emilia - the first time in his very long life that he hasn't carried over the soul he was assigned to carry over. It would be romantic, except that they're being hunted. And as Emilia and the man with the veil of smoke set out for the ocean in a stolen truck, there is a bloody handprint on his neck and she’s beginning to worry it's hers.

Illustrated in competing points of view, narration comes from both Death and Amelia, giving the story conflicting, yet unique perspectives.

Two Graves is the first volume of a new series from writer Genevieve Valentine and illustrated by Annie Wu and Ming Doyle.

This edition features bonus backmatter content, including essays by bestselling Broken Earth trilogy author N.K. Jemisin, Sarah McCarry (Lambda, Norton, and Tiptree nominee), Veronica Schanoes (Shirley Jackson Award winner, Nebula, and World Fantasy nominee), and Stephanie Lai (Best New Talent Ditmar Award, 2018).
