Graves by L. E. Erickson

Using the power of the dead to protect the freedom of the living. 

Legally, Daria should turn herself in to Ardica City’s LM4 Processing Agency, which is tasked with ensuring that those with the ability to tap into the energy left behind by the ghosts of the dead will use their abilities only for the good of the people. But despite heavy-handed government measures, the threat of war beyond Ardica’s walls, the manipulations of a criminal gang, and her own brother’s law-abiding ideals, independent-minded Daria is determined to hold onto her freedom–even if it means starting a revolution to do so.

Note: Graves contains some harsh language.

Cyberpunk meets Fantasy.

By Eren Reverie, author of Et Alia

Aug 28, 2015: Alright: I’m going to start by saying that "Graves" is really well written. I didn’t find any gramatical or spelling errors in the entire archive while I was reading, and the descriptions are nicely vivid. On the other hand, the chapters felt a little short and some of the ‘cliffhanger’ hooks at the end of the first couple felt a little abrupt.
