Looming at the very southern tip of Patagonia, the Vacarro family's finishing school is rumoured to be haunted. Legend has it there is a curse on the land to ruin all those who settled there.
When young Mavi arrives for a teaching position, she's determined to write off the initial signs: the brushes of cold air, the missing student, and the warnings not to roam the halls at night. But the spirits haunting this dark place won't be ignored, and a cruel fate seems inescapable.
One of these spirits befriends Mavi in hopes of redemption; but the spirit's dark secret changes everything. Together, they must learn the rules of this cosmic game, or Mavi's very existence will shatter.

What Reviewers Are Saying
A hauntingly good read, full of terror and mystery. --Hypable
Gothic thriller meets science fiction in this enthralling labyrinth of a story that is as deeply emotional as it is entirely unpredictable. Faring is brilliant. --The Bulletin, starred review
The story delivers numerous twists and turns, each a deliriously unreal blow... [A] wholly original tale. --Kirkus Reviews
A shocking twist of an ending... Those in search of classic Gothic horror will be drawn in by the elegant writing and eerie atmosphere--before it changes into something unexpected. --Booklist
Faring's exquisite prose weaves a tale that is both seductively eerie and wildly original. I've never read anything like it.
--April Genevieve Tucholke, author of The Boneless Mercies
