Today Eliza Wass and Rockstar Book Tours are revealing the cover for The Life and Death Parade, which releases June 26, 2018! Check out the gorgeous
cover and enter to win an ARC!
I had not heard about this book until I received an email about the cover reveal and giveaway that was happening, but I had heard of Eliza Wass’s other book (which was also published with Disney-Hyperion) The Cresswell Plot. While I missed out on requesting that book around the time that it came out last year, (and was quite jealous of the people who did get ARCs for that book, because they were delivered in a box full of earth! Isn’t that cool?!) I will definitely not be missing out on requesting, reading, and reviewing this upcoming release! The synopsis for The Life and Death Parade sounds quite interesting, and I was kind of already hooked when tarot was mentioned, because I absolutely love tarot and everything involving tarot. Read on to find out more about The Life and Death Parade!
And ah! The cover is so striking! I really like that only 3 colours were used, and the design in the center really screams tarot! I don’t know about you, but tarot has played a big role in my family ever since I was really young. My parents have been reading tarot for themselves and my sister and I for years and years. My mom also knows how to read coffee grounds on the inside of someone’s cup (rather than tea leaves, haha). I’m quite interested to see how much of a role tarot and that sort of thing will play in The Life and Death Parade coming out next June!

Synopsis: One year ago, Kitty’s boyfriend Nikki Bramley visited a psychic who told him he had no future. Now, he’s dead.
With the Bramley family grieving in separate corners of their home, Kitty sets out to find the psychic who read Nikki his fate. Instead she finds Roan, an enigmatic boy posing as a medium who belongs to the Life and Death Parade–a group of supposed charlatans that explore, and exploit, the thin veil between this world and the next. A group whose members include the psychic… and Kitty’s late mother.
Desperate to learn more about the group and their connection to Nikki, Kitty convinces Roan to return to the Bramley house with her and secures a position for him within the household. Roan quickly ingratiates himself with the Bramleys, and soon enough it seems like everyone is ready to move on. Kitty, however, increasingly suspects Roan knows more about Nikki than he’s letting on. And when they finally locate the Life and Death Parade, and the psychic who made that fateful prophecy to Nikki, Kitty uncovers a secret about Roan that changes everything.
From rising star Eliza Wass comes a sophisticated, mesmerizing meditation on the depths of grief and the magic of faith. After all, it only works if you believe it.
