Fantasy ghosts urban fantasy dark fiction quiet and eerie

Karen and Patrick move across the world and into a new home, only to be haunted by the faint cries of a taiya, a spirit eaten by grief so old it no longer knows the cause of its own sorrow. They might be able to starve it into disappearing—if Karen can break the pull she feels toward it. Author Vanessa Fogg has published many pieces of beautiful, haunting short fiction as well as a novella, available now from Annorlunda Books.
