Contemporary fantasy. 85,000 words.

Theogony wanted to be a research physicist, but at twenty-nine years old, she’s little more than a TA. Demoralized, she retreats to her grandmother’s house, where she grew up, hoping to rekindle the passion she once had for her work. Instead, she has to plan a funeral.

When Gran dies after a series of bad omens, and Theogony discovers a set of journals suggesting their family were Ferriers of the Dead, Theogony begins to question her long-held belief that science can explain everything. There’s an underworld where the dead go, but sometimes, unlucky souls don’t make it across, and Gran was one of the unlucky ones. Only a Ferrier has any chance of finding her soul in the abyss between Life and Death.

Now, Theogony’s got to make a choice: leave Gran’s soul to an eternity in darkness, or take a risk on the irrational, and exchange her life for the chance to save a lost soul… while possibly losing her own in the process.
