Read in February, 2012

Roger can cross over to the land of the dead, if he is subjected to pain. He is an orphan living with his aunt and uncle, and the abusive uncle uses Roger to rip off people that have lost a loved one.
Through various circumstances Roger escapes and comes to the main capital where the Queen discovers Roger's abilities and wants to use them for her own good.

Although the plot sounds captivating, I was left feeling disappointed. The book is not bad, but it's very uneven - just when it captivates you, it leaves you hanging.
The biggest disappointment was Roger, the main character. He is extremely self-pitying and spineless and I found myself unable to relate to him or even like him.

The book leaves you with more questions than answers, probably because the author wanted to leave something for the sequel, but although I’m left wondering, I’m not certain that I want to read the sequel.
