Twelve Bones by Rosie Talbot
Prepare for more spooky, swoony YA from BookTok star @Merrowchild!
The thing about death is ... it sneaks up on you. Seventeen-year-old seer Charlie and his new boyfriend, Sam, know that the dead can't hurt the living.
It's ghosts who need protection from dangerous soul catchers - and the boys have promised to keep them safe. But when a powerful force interferes with their defences, and a brutal attack leaves them questioning everything they know, the boys realize there is more at stake than they ever imagined. A deadly occultist seeks revenge, the bodies are piling up, and everyone that Charlie loves is at risk.
As the mystery unravels, Charlie and Sam face a battle for more than just their lives. The thrilling and heart-wrenching new novel from the author of Sixteen Souls. Perfect for fans of Cemetery Boys, Becky Albertalli and V E Schwab.
