It’s a wildly morbid tale about a young woman’s experience in cheating death and falling in love after she dies.
When life and death collide there is no telling where it might end. Sally Mertill is spending time with friends visiting her beloved state. They’ve spent the day poking around Pike’s Peak and looking as far as they can see, but everything changes on the way back down the mountain to Colorado Springs. In a flash they careen off the side of the mountain.
With no guardrails it’s not surprising that no one survives. And yet within days, Bocnic Drewings will call upon the metal drawer where her body awaits an autopsy. For whatever reason the powers that be have chosen Sally to join the ranks of the undead—and there’s a kick, Sally also possesses a power only one other undead has ever had, which is to control and bring back anything that has died.
As Bocnic teaches her the ropes of not living, it becomes obvious that not all the undead share her enthusiasm for life—or have a heart. Sally is caught between worlds as also learns what it means to be undead when The Cross, a branch of the Catholic Church, seeks to destroy her.
