I love the cover of this book. The girls on it look ready for a battle. I like the fierce expression on their faces and, once I’d gotten my hands on a copy of the book, I liked the silver foil used for the title and the faint water snake flowing through it.
When I saw the book at the Lion Forge booth at the 2019 ALA Conference, I knew I had to get it because of the cover, so I did and recently read it.

Mila is a solitary teenager ready to put another boring summer vacation behind her until she meets Agnes, an adventurous girl who turns out to be a ghost. And not just a regular ghost, but one carrying the essence of an ancient fallen king and a mouth full of teeth that used to be his guardian warriors.
