Asia has a past, and it's not the sort of past that others have. Asia's past is
always galloping up behind her and jumping on her back. Her
mother is a permanent presence, the focal point of the day, but
sometimes she swallows her up entirely, invades every part of her life,
and drives Asia to the edge of madness.
But who is this compelling, alien woman? Why does she pursue Asia so
relentlessly? What does she really want from her daughter? As the novel
moves on, Asia becomes obsessed with unmasking her mother's true identity.
The Death Fairy is remarkable because, in an age where graphic brutality
is the norm, it contains virtually no violence. However, it's a skin-tingler from
start to finish, because Asia is waging a constant battle
to control--and even possess--her own life.
