When Fifteen-year-old Destin Shaw dies in a car accident, he becomes a shadow, invisible to the living. Soon he joins other dead children who ease the worthy into a peaceful death.
But his new world has secrets--stories of murder, betrayal and sacrifice. If Destin seeks the truth, he will risk losing his existence. More
Moments after a fatal car crash, fifteen-year-old Destin Shaw is a shadow. None of the living can see or hear him; he's utterly alone until Jillian Robards appears. She can see him—but then, she's dead too.
Jillian brings Destin into the Dwellers, other dead children who aid the living: they take on the painful memories of the dying and help them to the other side. In time, the Dwellers themselves can move on, but only after they finish their service. Destin settles into his afterlife; helping the dying teaches him more about life than he ever knew alive, and he's hoping to learn more about Jillian.
But even the dead have ghosts, and one in particular is out to send as many Dwellers as he can into a horrible limbo existence. Dwellers have tried to stop this executioner before, and now Destin must decide whether he will be the next—before Jillian decides to take on the job herself.
Destiny's Dwellers is the first book in the series The Dwellers Saga.
