The Undertaking of Lily Chen
In the mountains of northern China, ancient custom demands that every man have a lover to keep him company in the afterlife.
Deshi Li's brother is dead--and unmarried. Which means that Deshi must find him an eligible body before the week is up.
Lily Chen, sweet as a snakebite, needs money and a fast ride out of town.
Haunted by the gods of their ancestors and the expectations of the new world, Deshi and Lily embark on a journey, with two very different destinations in mind.
They travel through a land where the ground is hard and the graves are shallow, where marriage can be murder, and where Lily Chen is wanted--dead and alive.
