Paperback Spotlight: Unwept by Tracy Hickman & Laura Hickman

Unwept by Tracy Hickman and Laura HickmanOnce a month, we’re spotlighting a Tor book that’s about to become available in paperback. Today, we’re featuring Unwept, the beginning of a spellbinding new trilogy by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman, publishing June 2nd.

In Unwept, Gamin, Maine, is a remote seaside town where everyone seems to know Ellis Harkington better than she knows herself–but she doesn’t remember any of them. Only her past and those lost memories can keep her from falling prey to an unearthly killer. We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

CHAPTER ONE: NIGHTMARE

A cold, damp darkness greeted Ellis as her consciousness collected within her. She had been resting peacefully on her back. A sweet fluttering against her cheek brought her back from sleep. She raised a hand to touch her face and her wrist clacked against a solid surface inches in front of her.

Panic rose in her as the strangeness of being in a place she didn’t recall brought her sharply awake in the midst of utter darkness.

Book Trailer: Unwept by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman

Unwept by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman

Unwept is the beginning of a spellbinding new trilogy by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman, bestselling co-creators of Dragonlance and Ravenloft.

Gamin, Maine, is a remote seaside town where everyone seems to know Ellis Harkington better than she knows herself—but she doesn’t remember any of them.

Unknown events have robbed Ellis of her memory. Concerned individuals, who claim to be friends and loved ones, insist that she simply needs to recuperate, and that her memories may return in time. But, for her own sake—so they claim—they refuse to divulge what has brought her to this state.

Ellis finds herself adrift in a town of ominous mysteries, cryptic hints, and disturbingly familiar strangers. The Nightbirds, a clique of fashionable young men and women, claim her as one of their own, but who can she truly trust? And what of the phantom suitor who visits her in her dreams? Is he a memory, a figment of her imagination, or a living nightmare beyond rational explanation?

Only her lost past holds the answers she seeks—if she can uncover its secrets before she falls prey to an unearthly killer.

Unwept, by Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman, will publish on July 1st.
