Here’s a debut that’s caught our eye. Jacqueline Holland’s The God of Endings is a book about the gift of immortality, the curse of immortality, and how to navigate the two extremes. It’s not a vampire novel, per se, but, well, you don’t live forever without, you know, extraordinary circumstances. In The God of Endings, lonely Collette LeSange finds her solitary life as a teacher at an elite art school upset by the arrival of a gifted child from a troubled home. There’s a little bit of Anne Rice here, a little bit of V. E. Schwab, and a little bit of Maggie O’Farrell. Those are some good comps.
Groovy cover too.
