After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working.Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know,alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh -helping of others is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than shed like. Before Alona can make a final ruling on Wills friend or more status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alonas most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! Shes only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess. Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. Shes the first ghost-talker Wills ever metaside from his fatherand she may hold answers to Wills troubled past. But can she be trusted?Alona immediately puts a check mark in the clearly not column. But Will is -ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea. Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger,Queen of the Deadis the out-of-this-world sequel toThe Ghost and the Goth.
