Delilah “Del” Cross went into the woods with the express purpose of never coming back out. However, death was interested in someone else that night, a murdered young woman that Del watches rise from her grave.
Del is then brought into a very special community living in happy isolation in the beautiful Whisper Valley. There creatures of myth and legend live together in harmony, following a strict set of rules that allow them to be who they are but also enjoy modern amenities like a steady Wifi connection and the latest smartphone. They all just want a normal life that’s free from persecution by humans.
For them, humans are instead seen as a commodity. Specifically they’re known as the “Bodies” and they all have one year to either be sponsored or converted by one of the town’s supernatural citizens. Del fills the vacancy left by the corpse in the woods, Calista Nightgrave. Calista should have been the next bride to a wealthy vampire, but instead she is a lowly zombie that’s furious over the shift in her immortal afterlife.
Del and Calista will have to work together to find Calista’s killer, grant her revenge, and discover the truth behind the case of the stolen bride.
