Renaissance Raines wound up dead, resurrected, and then abandoned—stuck in the shadows between the worlds of the living and the dead. She’s now a psychopomp, one of the guides who lead the souls of the recently departed through the Seven Gates of the Underworld. But when a young boy named Ramses St. Cyr manages to escape the moment of his foretold death, she finds herself at the center of a deity-thick plot unfolding in the streets of New Orleans.It seems someone helped Ramses evade his fate, someone willing to risk the delicate balance of life and death just to steal a little slice of power for themselves. And when the Underworld’s newest psychopomp finds the one responsible, there’s going to be all kinds of hell to pay. Because there are scarier things than death in the Crescent City, and Renaissance Raines is one of them.
