"Gothic curses, deadly love affairs, and vengeful ghosts combine to make this paranormal mystery a compelling page-turner." -- Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin
"The Longing and the Lack is a seriously steamy supernatural suspense, steeped in folklore and fantasy. Spivey combines ancient curses and stolen kisses effortlessly, bringing a progressive passion to the paranormal." - William Ritter, author of the NYT bestselling Jackaby series
About the Author
C.M. Spivey is a speculative fiction writer, author of high fantasy Trident Chronicles and the paranormal series, The Unliving. His enduring love of fantasy started young. Now, he explores the rules and ramifications of magic in his own works-and as a trans, panromantic asexual, he's committed to queering his favorite genres. In his spare time, he plans his next tattoo (there will always be a next tattoo) and watches too much Netflix. Anything left over is devoted to his tireless quest to make America read more. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his darling husband Matt and adorable dog Jay.
