Seattle, Washington: Land of cloudy skies and a great cup of coffee.
Octavia blew into town in search of information, only to get swirled up in a paranormal predicament even she couldn’t fathom. A neonatal nurse is dead, and her young patient is aging at an alarming rate.
Can Octavia unlock the secrets to this confusing curse before time runs out?
Badass female heroine✔
Laugh out loud wit✔
Pig 🐖 Sidekick✔
Wait, what? Yep! That's right, a pig for a sidekick and his name is Bacon. How perfect is that!
Wake the Dead is book 1 in Rourke's new novella series, The Journals of Octavia Hollow. Its fast paced, action packed, full of sarcasm and wit, and laugh out loud funny at times. If you are not amused by a pig in a baby carrier strapped to a necromancer 's chest, then this book is not for you.
We first met Octavia in the Havenwood Falls Novella How the Dead Lie, while it would be a bonus to read it first, you really don't have to.
I loved seeing what happens after they left HWF. Octavia is searching for answers, and growing into who she is meant to be. Will she find herself or will she have to continue searching?
