Image of As Lie the Dead (Dreg City, Book 2)

Solving her own murder was just the warm-up for newly resurrected dreg hunter Evy Stone. Rising star Meding returns to the ominous world and gutsy heroine first introduced in her exceptional debut. Menace oozes from the pages, as Meding places her heroine in the middle of a maze where deceit and betrayal run rampant. Evy is an unforgettable heroine and Meding an author to watch!

Having stopped a demon invasion and had her resurrection deal broken, Evy is still recovering physically and learning to accept her new life in what was Chalice Frost’s body. Evy and her former handler Wyatt Truman have little peace before they are confronted by surviving Owlkin Phineas el Chimal, who wants vengeance against the human triads who slaughtered his people. For her part, Evy doesn’t want her old friend Rufus to die, but rather believes the faceless Brass, who gave the orders, should pay. It doesn’t take long for Evy to realize something else is brewing, and it won’t be good for humankind. (DELL, Aug., 432 pp., $7.99)
