Description

For seventeen-year-old Maggie Johnson, transitioning the dead isn't hard. What's tough is surviving the insults and pranks of Serge Popov, high school thug and the dumbest jock to ever set foot in Dead Falls, Alberta. When she finds him dead and later discovers his spirit trapped in her room, she figures it's a case of divine justice. Let the jerk rot for eternity, bound to an earthly prison. But someone-or something-has a different agenda. If Maggie doesn't help Serge cross over, she'll die at the hands of the otherworldly entity that's taken an interest in the dead bully. As she digs into the circumstances of Serge's murder, she'll uncover the secrets hidden by the world of the living and the wonders revealed by cities of the dead-if her investigation doesn't kill her first.

Editorial Review

"a great hybrid of horror and mystery (think Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Veronica Mars), with oodles of potential for humour and terror - and Deen gets the most out of both."- Quill & Quire "Any novel which has what appears to be a dead body in the trunk of the protagonist's car on the very first page is bound to be a page-turner — this mix of mystery and fantasy in Guardian is unusual, perhaps, but effective. Highly recommended." - CM Magazine "Guardian is at its heart a murder mystery, albeit a paranormal one, and a superb one at that" - CanLit For Little Canadians

"certainly a recommended read for those interesting in young adult/paranormal fictions." - Asian American Literature Fans
