Genre: Literary Fantasy
When TK dies in a car accident, the Grim Reaper gives him a second chance at life, but he says it’s more fun being a ghost. As he haunts his small Iowa town, his sleek shell of sarcasm cracks to a terrified lonely inner self. Find out why he’d rather be dead.
Review: Eidolons was very different from what I expected. TK dies in a car accident and gets a second chance at life - but he would rather stay a ghost. As the author gives the reader more and more insight into who TK is, his past, his psyche, we learn why he'd rather be dead. The book isn't so much a mystery / fantasy book as it's about TK, about humanity, about relationships. Despite it being different from what I thought it would be like, I really enjoyed it.
