COVER REVEAL.jpg

Today Eliza Wass and Rockstar Book Tours are revealing the cover for The Life and Death Parade, which releases June 26, 2018! Check out the gorgeous
cover and enter to win an ARC!

I had not heard about this book until I received an email about the cover reveal and giveaway that was happening, but I had heard of Eliza Wass’s other book (which was also published with Disney-Hyperion) The Cresswell Plot. While I missed out on requesting that book around the time that it came out last year, (and was quite jealous of the people who did get ARCs for that book, because they were delivered in a box full of earth! Isn’t that cool?!) I will definitely not be missing out on requesting, reading, and reviewing this upcoming release! The synopsis for The Life and Death Parade sounds quite interesting, and I was kind of already hooked when tarot was mentioned, because I absolutely love tarot and everything involving tarot. Read on to find out more about The Life and Death Parade!

It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds.
