There are laws that even the dead must obey. No hijacking the bodies of the living. No possessing the dead. And never speak of the Dark. It's the job of Police Exorcist Arphallo Sirus and his murdered partner, Sam Trent, to enforce these laws. Their job on the Dead Beat has always been a tough one, but now it's become nearly impossible as ghosts tear the worlds apart in search of answers.
Sandstorms have ravaged the earth, and dark, mysterious Stormspheres protect the few remaining cities. While Gardeners tend the precious spheres, their Blackthumbs maintain the peace. All across the world, the Stormspheres are failing and the cities are falling. Blackthumbs Julia and Zach may have just discovered why. They can save Angel City – but first they have to save themselves.
A haunted train, the gods' retirement home, a spirit of vengeance doesn't know her purpose, and a blackmailer has lost his memory. An ancient star's gravity brings a starship to life, and the laws of the dead are tricky.
