Queen of the Dead Series : Titles in Order

Book 3
Grave is the concluding novel in the haunting Queen of the Dead paranormal trilogy.

Emma and her friends have survived the Necromancers sent to the city to kill them. They’ve gone to ground in a cottage north of the city, but time is not on their side. There are no barriers that can keep the dead out, and the dead obey their Queen. It’s only a matter of time before they’re found.

Nathan has been blessed by the Queen of the Dead. She has granted him a physical body. He can eat, he can breathe, he can speak and be heard. The Queen calls this resurrection. Nathan calls it Hell. The living think he’s alive. He’s not. He’s trapped in the citadel that the Queen of the Dead calls home.

Emma wants to free him. To do that she has to survive long enough to reach the City of the Dead, and face its ancient Queen. But the city of the dead is the heart of the Queen’s stronghold—and her power. Emma can’t do it alone.

She’s not alone. But even with hunters and her own dead at her side, what hope does she have against a woman who has lived so long, and grown so powerful, she’s almost a god?
Book 2
NATHANFour months ago, Nathan had everything he wanted in life: he had Emma.
Three months ago, he died.
Death hasn’t been easy. The only people who can see the dead are Necromancers and their Queen. And you don’t want to piss off the Queen of the Dead. She’s brilliant light and fire, and if there’s no actual hell, she can make a personal one, just for you.

But all she seems to want for Nathan is to send him home — where he can see the people he loved, even if they can’t see him. He doesn’t know why. He doesn’t care. If he goes home, he can finally see…

EMMA
Four months ago, Emma was in love with Nathan.

Three months ago, he died.

One month ago, Emma began to see the dead. They look exactly the way they appeared before they died; she knows. She’s seen her father. She’s even argued with him.

Seeing the dead has made her life vastly more complicated. People want to kill her. People want to kidnap her and force her to truly become a Necromancer. People want to kill her friends, just because they know her.

But even if she could get rid of this strange power, she wouldn’t, because if it’s gone, she’ll never see Nathan again…

But the Queen of the Dead has plans of her own, for both Nathan and Emma.
Book 1
The haunting beginning to Michelle Sagara’s young adult paranormal trilogy, Queen of the Dead.

It began in the graveyard…

Ever since her boyfriend Nathan had died in a tragic accident, Emma had been coming to the graveyard at night. During the day she went through the motions at her prep school, in class, with her friends, but that’s all it was. For Emma, life had stopped with Nathan’s death. But tonight was different. Tonight Emma and her dog were not alone in the cemetery. There were two others there—Eric, who had just started at her school, and an ancient woman who looked as though she were made of rags. And when they saw Emma there, the old woman reached out to her with a grip as chilling as death….

Emma was not quite like other girls. It was true that other girls had experienced grief. Other girls had also lost their fathers, or had their boyfriends die in senseless accidents. But though she hadn’t known it till that night in the graveyard, unlike those other girls, she could see, touch, and speak with the dead….
