“Everyone dies. But not everyone can die killing a god.”
Gingerbread Wolves, the fourth volume of The Book Of Lost Doors, pits Outsider modified humanity against the Outsiders themselves as Agony Delapour vows to make war against deep heaven.
James is caught in the middle, between those he loves and the alien madness of the old gods, with the future of the human race hanging in the balance. His fragile community must risk everything to prevent the Outsiders from triggering a nova event—a collision of universes that would end all life on Earth.
Agony says that she has a plan, and that even gods can die.
But, as usual in James’ world, nothing is exactly what it seems.
Sometimes the day you die is only the beginning of a new job.
Piper Willow dies the summer after her high school graduation and finds herself in a spiritual terminal called the Station. She’s given only two choices: Move on to the unknown where she’ll be forced to spend an eternity in her own personal hell or be trained as a Volunteer and return to Earth as the subconscious for a person in need of outside assistance. Does Piper have what it takes to save a life, to be the nagging voice inside another person’s head? Or will she fail and end up lost and tormented…forever?
“Excuse me, Niles…I mean, Mr. Abbott. But, where are we?”
“I’ll explain everything to you dear, just as soon as we reach the Station.”
“What station? We aren’t in the hospital? Where’s my Dad?”
“No Piper, this isn’t the hospital, and your father is at home…he’s fine. Please, follow me.”
He turns away and continues on through the light. I hang my head, staring at my bare feet as we walk. Even though my cuts are gone, I keep rubbing my arm. It’s soothing. I almost bump into Niles when he stops abruptly.
“We’re here,” he says softly.
A Review from K.S. Haigwood – “Truly one of the best novels I’ve read in a long time. I can’t say enough about this book, but spoilers are not my thing, so I will just say as much as I can without over doing it. Don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but I do want to encourage you to read it.
I can only imagine how many people think about commiting suicide in this cruel world every day. Whether it’s work, family, lifestyle or something tragic that has happened that one believes they can’t possibly go on living with anymore, ‘The Station’ gives those that have given up another option besides Hell(although that is totally still an option). Being a volunteer is not an easy task, nor is it something that should be chosen lightly. Ride with Piper on her journey in the after-life. I promise you will be picking up ‘Dying To Remember’ as soon as you finish the last page. I highly recommend this novel to anyone between the ages of 14 – 100.”
