The best day in Fin Pearson’s 13 years of life was the day they had him killed. Or at least, after they made it look like they had killed him. It’s all rather complicated. Don’t ask too many questions. Regardless, his death opened up a new world to him. The world of the Autumn Society – a secret organization that protects the world from the nefarious paranormal. Grumpy ghouls, sandwich making corpses and of course, magic and mystery fill his days now that he’s left the orphanage. But something terrible stirs beneath his feet and he discovers that he is more connected to the shadows of Forsythe Academy than anyone could have ever guessed.
