Ghost with a broken heart
On a dark highway, a creature from the Void confronts a lonely ghost, ready to feed on her memories.
The ghost is Esther Carmichael, and she's been through so much anguish since she died. She's ready to bid farewell to her existence until the creature awakens something inside her.
Now she's dying to live.
Esther is a beloved character from the Jonathan Shade urban fantasy series, and while this short story takes place soon after the events of the novel Timeless Gods, you don't need to have read the books to enjoy the ride. However, if you have read the Shade books, you definitely don't want to miss this one.
