a novel by Adam J. Thaxton
The mysterious zobani live alongside us, invisible to our senses, seemingly harmless until they take up residence inside us, driving us to madness or worse. Fortunately, modern science has found cures for most of them, from fundamentalist ideas to bad dreams, in the form of medicines, exercises, and rituals designed to keep the worst of them at bay. However, not everyone can afford these treatments. Enter Ten-Ghost, spiritual doctor and mandrake given life, who has sworn to use her talents to help those in her path. She takes to the wilderness, where her stolen life can not linger for long, burying herself in her work. She demands that her patients avail themselves of her services, tricking them into it one way or another. All is well, until a visit from Fate's messenger, the spirit of a forgotten summer, who gives her a message that shakes her to her core. For Fate's messenger demands that she becomes human.
