Looming at the very southern tip of Patagonia, the Vacarro family's finishing school is rumoured to be haunted. Legend has it there is a curse on the land to ruin all those who settled there.
When young Mavi arrives for a teaching position, she's determined to write off the initial signs: the brushes of cold air, the missing student, and the warnings not to roam the halls at night. But the spirits haunting this dark place won't be ignored, and a cruel fate seems inescapable.
One of these spirits befriends Mavi in hopes of redemption; but the spirit's dark secret changes everything. Together, they must learn the rules of this cosmic game, or Mavi's very existence will shatter.

"A hauntingly good read, full of terror and mystery." --Hypable
"Gothic thriller meets science fiction in this enthralling labyrinth of a story that is as deeply emotional as it is entirely unpredictable. Faring is brilliant." --The Bulletin, starred review
"The story delivers numerous twists and turns, each a deliriously unreal blow... [A] wholly original tale." --Kirkus Reviews
