If you're looking for new, unique, and diverse writing that is reminiscent of authors like Mona Awad, Cat Valente, and Carmen Maria Machado, this book is an ideal read for you! Chadburn's Filipino heritage lends a heavy filter to the narrative, which follows the too-short life of a woman cast out by society and transformed by death into an agent of justice--or mercy. Murdered by a serial killer, Marina Salles' life doesn't end the day she wakes up dead. Transformed into a monster from myth, she has nine days to decide whether to enact revenge.
