The Raising

by Shoshana Kessock

The world forgets about the dead. The lives of those who have passed away survive only as footnotes in history, or else as pinpricks of loss in the hearts of those who mourn them. But on the Other Side, the dead watch and yearn for a return to the land of the living.

Then one day, the gates of the afterlife burst open, and you and the other dead can return to reclaim what you’ve lost. The Raising has allowed many to start anew, alive once more in the living bodies they take over. Some want to reconnect to the people they loved. Others just want to get a fresh start in one of the Harrows, territories held by the Raised. No matter your goal, everyone knows one thing: get caught by any of the minions of the Other Side, and you’ll never see another sunrise. Meanwhile, you’re a dead person walking.
