Summary

During a summer in the community of Fort Morgan, Alabama, Sam and Dex, along with their newfound friend and soon-to-be crush Mac, begin to realize ghosts inhabit the area, and the spirits are not only frightening, they’re bent on destruction. After finding a cryptic message left by Sam’s now deceased grandfather, the trio realizes they may be the only ones who stand in the way of the ghoulish General’s vile and fiendish plans.
 
Every other chapter early in the book tells the true story of the untimely demise of some of the future ghosts in the area around Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island. As the ghosts manifest to our characters, Sam realizes that clues and a trinket (that in reality is a talisman) left behind by his grandfather may have been provided to prevent a takeover by the evil spirits.
 
With little hope battling the evil entities, the General steals Grandma’s dog, McRuff, in the hope of luring our heroes into what he believes will be a gruesome ending, and as a hurricane approaches the trio battles not only the ghosts but mother nature in a fight for not only Fort Morgan and Gulf Shores but also their lives.
Available since: 10/31/2022.

    An unforgettable tale of a village that descends into a sleepwalking spell as the sun threatens to never rise again, by the author of Discovering Fiction. 
     
    Yan Lianke has secured his place as contemporary China’s most essential and daring novelist, “with his superlative gifts for storytelling and penetrating eye for truth” (New York Times Book Review). His newest novel, The Day the Sun Died—winner of the Dream of the Red Chamber Award, one of the most prestigious honors for Chinese-language novels—is a haunting story of a town caught in a waking nightmare. 
     
    In a little village nestled in the Balou mountains, fourteen-year-old Li Niannian and his parents run a funeral parlor. One evening, he notices a strange occurrence. Instead of preparing for bed, more and more neighbors appear in the streets and fields, carrying on with their daily business as if the sun hadn’t already set. Li Niannian watches, mystified. As hundreds of residents are found dreamwalking, they act out the desires they’ve suppressed during waking hours. Before long, the community devolves into chaos, and it’s up to Li Niannian and his parents to save the town before sunrise. 
     
    Set over the course of one increasingly bizarre night, The Day the Sun Died is a propulsive, darkly sinister tale from a world-class writer. 
     
    A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice

    An Amazon Best Book of the Month 
     
    “[The Day the Sun Died is] the creepiest book I’ve read in years: a social comedy that bleeds like a zombie apocalypse . . .  Yan’s understated wit runs through these pages like a snake through fallen leaves . . .  Invokes that fluid dream state in which everything represents something else, something deeper . . .  A wake-up call about the path we’re on.” —Ron Charles, Washington Post 
     
    “Floats between surrealism, sci-fi, horror, and absurdism, while never letting go of its satirical eye. Yet the language and structure of the novel reads more like Samuel Beckett or James Joyce than it does The Handmaid’s Tale.” —Ploughshares

    Amelia Matthew has done the all-but-impossible, especially for an orphan in Gilded Age New York City. Along with her foster brother Jonas, she has parlayed her modest psychic talent into a safe and comfortable life. But safety and comfort vanish when a head injury leaves her with a dramatically-expanded gift. After she publicly channels an angry spirit, she finds herself imprisoned in the notorious insane asylum on Blackwell’s Island. As Jonas searches for a way to free her, Amelia struggles to control her disturbing new abilities and survive a place where cruelty and despair threaten her sanity. Andrew Cavanaugh is familiar with despair. In the wake of a devastating loss, he abandons a promising medical career—and his place in Philadelphia society—to devote himself to the study and treatment of mental disease. Miss Amelia Matthew is just another patient—until she channels a spirit in front of him and proves her gift is real. When a distraught mother comes to Andrew searching for her missing daughter—a daughter she believes is being hidden at the asylum—he turns to Amelia. Together, they uncover evidence of a deadly conspiracy, and then it’s no longer just Amelia’s sanity and freedom at stake.
