Frequently bought together
"THE RAISING is that rare thing: a literary novel distinguished by splendid prose that is also a down-and-dirty page-turner, a creep show featuring empty caskets and walking corpses. It's as if "The Grapes of Wrath" had been rewritten by H.P. Lovecraft."--Chicago Tribune
"Almost a supernatural thriller, almost a campus satire and almost but not quite a coming-of-age tale...Kasischke remains aware that she works in familiar traditions: her scenes play knowingly with the expectations...that her precedents raise, from "Buffy" to Euripides' "Bacchae."--New York Times Book Review
"An atmospheric shiver-fest . . . [a] devious, claustrophobic chiller."--Marie Claire (UK)
"Nothing is as it first appears in Laura Kasischke's suspense novel THE RAISING...Just when readers think they've got it all figured out, there's another twist that spins them off in another direction...The kind of story readers won't soon forget."--Grand Rapids Press
"A fine writer, a haunted and haunting tale, a flurry of beautiful girls -- you don't put this book down once you've picked it up."--Fay Weldon, author of Kehua
"Dark, disquieting...starts off as a tragic love story--beautiful sorority girl killed in a car accident--then is skillfully transformed into a thoroughly modern ghost story. Each character is haunted by the memories and repercussions of that night. Lyrical, layered and riveting to the final page."--Family Circle
"Scary, spooky, sexy... we couldn't put it down."--Nylon Magazine
"From the first page of THE RAISING, Laura Kasischke tells a story of great weight and wicked beauty . . . Don't bother trying to put it down; it will call you back, and you'll go. Surrender. You'll be glad you did."--Amy MacKinnon, author of Tethered
"Haunting, unsettling, and unforgettable, THE RAISING limns love, longing, belonging and the things we only think we know about life--and yes, death. Told in knockout, shimmering prose, it's a literary mystery that's as hypnotic as it is brilliant."--Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You
From the Back Cover
Last year Godwin Honors Hall was draped in black. The university was mourningthe loss of one of its own: Nicole Werner, a blond, beautiful, straight-A sororitysister tragically killed in a car accident that left her boyfriend, who was driving, remarkably--some say suspiciously--unscathed.
Although a year has passed, as winter begins and the nights darken, obsession withNicole and her death reignites: She was so pretty. So sweet-tempered. So innocent. Tooyoung to die.
Unless she didn't.
Because rumor has it that she's back.
