Velveteen

By: Daniel Marks

BOOK TALK

Velveteen Monroe is dead.  Kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by a serial killer named Bonesaw, Velvet lands in Purgatory.  There she works as part of the Salvage team, where she helps to rescue trapped souls from the land of the living.  Unbeknownst to the others, she manages to slip back to keep track of Bonesaw and his victims.  There she haunts and torments Bonesaw to distract him from his evil purposes, and Velvet harbors plans to destroy him forever.  But even Purgatory has rules, and Velvet breaks them each time she slips back to the land of the living.  Now, the shadowquakes are increasing in intensity, and cracks have begun to appear in her world.  What price will she pay for revenge?
