SAVOY: Claire Cooney (Saint Deaths Daughter) Author Talk and Q&A

Ocean State Event Banner

Savoy Bookshop & Café presents an author talk and Q&A with C. S. E. Cooney for the new book, Saint Death's Daughter.

About the Book

Lanie Stones, the daughter of the Royal Assassin and Chief Executioner of Liriat, has never led a normal life. Born with a gift for necromancy and a literal allergy to violence, she was raised in isolation in the family's crumbling mansion by her oldest friend, the ancient revenant Goody Graves.

When her parents are murdered, it falls on Lanie and her cheerfully psychotic sister Nita to settle their extensive debts or lose their ancestral home--and Goody with it. Appeals to Liriat's ruler to protect them fall on indifferent ears... until she, too, is murdered, throwing the nation's future into doubt.

Hunted by Liriat's enemies, hounded by her family's creditors and terrorised by the ghost of her great-grandfather, Lanie will need more than luck to get through the next few months--but when the goddess of Death is on your side, anything is possible.
