When in an attempt to impress Cora, Jack takes her on a date to the edge of the underworld, he ends up making a fatal mistake. Now, if there's any chance of saving Cora, nevermind himself, Jack will need the help of his old friend Euri and the city's colorful cast of spirits.

By turns heartrending and hillarious, this page-turning sequel to The Night Tourist expertly weaves the myth of Persephone and Demeter with a contemporary tale of love, loss and eternal friendship.

"Readers should be drawn in by the complex relationships between Marsh's protagonists and Jack's continuing existential struggles, caught between the worlds of the living and the dead."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The plot is lavishly draped with snappy dialogue, realistic teen characters and clever didn't-see-it-coming twists. An outstanding story with wide appeal."
—Kirkus Review

"The allusions to ancient gods may draw fans of Rick Riordan's popular series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. However, the dark humor and poignant exchanges between the dead and living put this novel closer in tone and sensibility to The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman. Like that Newbery winner, The Twilight Prisoner will keep kids reading late into the balmy nights ahead."
—Washington Post Book World Summer Reading Guide
