Of Delicate Pieces (Of Breakable Things #2)
Author: A. Lynden Rolland
Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal
Release Date: November 10, 2015
Publisher: Month9Books


Settling into her second year of death, Alex is ready to explore her limitless mind in an afterworld that changes each day, but she still isn’t resting in peace.

The ‘gifted’ are humans who see spirits and have the same extraordinary mental powers, though they aren’t considered equals. Centuries ago, Alex’s family led the movement to keep the living and dead separated, but the gifted believe Alex is a reincarnation of their slain civil leader. When they begin to break down the barriers that protect the city, the afterworld becomes dangerous and vulnerable to exposure. The living and dead both want to use Alex for their own gain, but what they don’t realize is that neither side will want her when they find out who she really is.

In the afterworld, nothing stays buried for long.

OF DELICATE PIECES is the follow-up to A. Lynden Rolland's OF BREAKABLE THINGS.

In Of Delicate Pieces, Alex learns how much her hometown is tied into the afterworld. She never met any of her family members, the founders of Parrish. She only heard stories about them. In Parrish, the kids sing an old town rhyme about Alex’s family, the Havilahs. The rhyme didn’t scare her when she was alive because she didn’t believe in ghosts…

On the nights when the breeze stinks of indigo
Shut your window tight on the sill.
The Havilahs dance in the shadows
Leaving fingerprints shaped like Anil.

You’ll hear them calling for you.
They’ll knock trice at the door.
And you’ll wake in the morning to find the adorning
Of blue footprints streaked ‘cross the floor.

They come for you in silence
And whisper in voices so hushed
And on their breath is the scent of death
With traces of ashes and dust.

As a spirit herself, Alex realizes that she might get the chance to meet some of the Havilahs after all. She just isn’t sure she wants to. 

Check out Book #1:
A captivating debut about the fragility of life, love, and perspective.

When Chase dies tragically, Alex embraces her own mortality. What she didn’t expect was that she’d have to make a choice: forget the years of pain and suffering once and for all, or linger as a spirit and get another chance at life and love.

Alex doesn’t hesitate to choose; she’d follow Chase anywhere. But the spirit world is nothing like she expected, and Alex finds she's forced to fight for her life once more. For even in a world where secrets are buried much deeper than six feet under, a legacy can continue to haunt you—and in a place this dangerous, no one is resting in peace.

A. Lynden Rolland was born and raised in a picturesque town obsessed with boats and blue crabs. She has always been intrigued by the dramatic and the broken, compiling her eccentric tales of tragic characters in a weathered notebook she began to carry in grade school. She is a sports fanatic, a coffee addict, and a lover of Sauvignon Blanc and thunderstorms. When she isn’t hunched behind a laptop at her local bookstore, she can be found chasing her two vivacious children. She resides in Maryland with her husband and young sons.
