THE ACCIDENTAL AFTERLIFE OF THOMAS MARSDEN, by Emma Trevayne

22673361

The story: Thomas’s “normal” life as the son of a London grave robber changes abruptly when he helps digs up the body of another boy who looks EXACTLY like him–even down to the blemish on his cheek. Turns out that Thomas was not just a foundling, but a changeling too…and that he’s the only one who can free a group of faeries who were stolen from their home and forced into slavery by the evil Mordecai, a sorcerer-wanna-be who uses them to channel the dead and allow his customers to speak to long-lost family members. Thomas wants to help…but if he does, it will change everything. And it’s impossible to know if that change will be good–or a downright killer.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  Here’s a fantasy story with an old-fashioned feel to it.  If you like a creepy, suspenseful setting, this story could be just the thing!
