The Funeral is the first of three special edition episodes from Dead Things Season Two, also known as Dark Dreams and Dead Things. Episode One is the first third of the full-length book and is for readers who prefer to read shorter novels.
For every life given, another must go in its place. Ember is learning this the hard way. Saving Quinn has cost another their life and also cost her the love of hers. Mace has disappeared, maybe for good, and Ember’s the only person who seems to care ...except for Quinn.
Some dead never die. Someone or something has gone to great lengths to prove that to Mace, killing him, over and over again, while forcing him to relive his past. Through it all, he dreams of the present. Of Ember.
Quinn had resigned himself to a life as the only human among the superhumans, but now, that’s all changed. He’s changed. He has a new face, a permanent darkness, and an insatiable hunger that’s slowly driving him mad. With everybody wrapped up in their own drama, Quinn turns to the only person who understands what it’s like to not know who you are anymore. Ember.
With Tristin seething over Quinn and Ember’s friendship, Kai is forced to deal with two problems he never anticipated: cannibalistic cheerleaders and having Rhys as his boyfriend. One small error has his alpha questioning whether Kai and Rhys can work together, but with half the pack spiraling and the other half missing, they might be her only option.
The Oracle has spoken. Ember, Kai, and Tristin are all a part of an ancient prophecy, but they have no idea what that entails. Mace is missing, people are dying, Quinn is changing, and all of their powers are growing. Can they solve the Wolf Creek murders and unmask the unseen villain behind the crimes before it’s too late?
