Gr 9 Up—Resistance to life as a wife and mother lands Silas a diagnosis of Veil sickness and conscription to a
torturous conversion facility masquerading as a boarding school. Horrific fictional violence parallels the real
psychological violence of forced conformity, but Silas finds redemption in community.

Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC!

This was a fantastic ghost story, the writing and the visuals were striking and unique, and the main character was someone you were rooting for the whole story. The characters had a lot of depth, and the relationship between Silas and Daphne was fantastic.

Loved this! Another favorite of the year. Highly recommend it for those deconstructing from religion (especially Christianity), and especially, if you're part of the LGBTQ community.

One of my favorite passage from the book:

"When I was born, Mom named me after a women in the Old Testament. She was a Jewish queen and one of the most beautiful women her kingdom had ever known. When her cousin offended the king's adviser, the adviser gained permission from the king to slaughter her people - but Esther foiled the plan and instead allowed her people to slaughter their enemies in turn. Mom thought she could name me Esther and not even consider the woman who saved those she loved? Or is the Angels' persecution complex so deep-rooted they think they are the ones who need saving?

Who am I kidding? I know damn well it is.

If Mom wanted to name me Esther, then fine. I'll live up to the name and lay it in an honored resting place at their graves. I won't be "blessed Seraph," I will be not be theirs, and there is nothing they can do about it. I've taken what they've given me and turned it into a mockery of them. I will turn it into what destroys them.

If they want me to be a monster one step closer to God, that's fine.

In what world was their God ever a benevolent one?"

I LOVE that last line. Can't recommend this enough, especially if you're a horror fan!
