After falling off a balcony, Harriet finds herself in another universe and must learn to follow its strange rules, as well as try to navigate a ghostly romance.
What if death is only the beginning?
When Harriet Stoker dies after falling from a balcony in a long-abandoned building, she discovers a world of ghosts with magical powers - shape-shifting, hypnosis, even the ability to possess the living.
Felix, Kasper, Rima and Leah welcome her into their world, eager to make friends with the new arrival. Yet Harriet is more interested in unleashing her own power, even if it means destroying everyone around her.
But when all of eternity is at stake, the afterlife can be a dangerous place to make an enemy.
