Velveteen - Daniel Marks Purgatory is the condition of purification or temporary punishment by which those who die in a state of grace are believed to be made ready for Heaven. [from Wiki]The in-between. Where you go when you have unfinished business of sorts. But you don’t get clued in to what is keeping you in Purgatory, one day when you overcome whatever’s got you trapped- you will turn to ash and pass on. It’s called “dimming”.Daniel Marks version of Purgatory is a lot like high school… Ironic right? As I always thought of high school AS Purgatory… More hell… But that’s neither here, nor there.Velveteen spends her days collecting lost souls for Purgatory and haunting her killer, Bonesaw, and trying to save his latest victims – definitely NOT for Purgatory. And her nights hanging out with her fellow Purgatorians (is that a word? Did I totally just make it up?).Regardless of the reason- “haunting” is ILLEGAL and the absolute WORST offense a ghost can commit in Purgatory. That doesn’t stop Velveteen from doing it though.She’s a Salvager, her and her crew go and reclaim any wandering, or trouble causing ghosts in the real world, “Her team were on it. Like black ops but ghosts.” Because a little harmless crystal ball can cause MASSIVE issues for Purgatory. Like Shadowquakes…“A single black tentacle took shape out of the curling inky shadows. It was joined by several more that slithered down each of the four walls of the courtyard…”But what no one knows is that there is a much darker force at large in Purgatory, plotting against the “keepers” of Purgatory and planning to bring it all down.Will Velveteen and her crew be able to save everyone? Will she be able to accept who is responsible for such crimes against Purgatory? What is she going to do about the boy they rescued during the Shadowquake, who seems to get under her skin and wiggle his way on to her team?Velveteen was a great read, but it was nothing like I thought it was going to be. It’s not an epic, sorrowful tale of a lost soul… It’s more like a high school drama… only instead of humans… they’re ghosts. Hmmm…And why is the guy on the cover not wearing a basketball uniform? Assuming that’s Nick of course…
