This love story for the ages, set in a reimagined industrial Asia, is a little dark, a bit breathless, and completely compelling. A a€œgrisly and satisfyinga€ tale (Publishers Weekly) inspired by The Phantom of the Opera. Sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic, housed in a slaughterhouse staffed by the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor. Wen often hears the whisper of a ghost in the slaughterhouse, a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. And after one of the Noor humiliates Wen, the ghost grants an impulsive wish of hersa€”brutally. Guilt-ridden, Wen befriends the Noor, including the outspoken leader, a young man named Melik. At the same time, she is lured by the mystery of the ghost. As deadly accidents fuel tensions within the factory, Wen is torn between her growing feelings for Melik, who is enraged at the sadistic factory bosses and the prejudice faced by his people at the hand of Wena€™s, and her need to appease the ghost, who is determined to protect her against any threata€”real or imagined. Will she determine whom to trust before the factory explodes, taking her down with it?He is muttering to himself about circuits and kill switches. We dona#39;t go down the hallway where the enormous, sharp-legged spider waits to fall upon the first poor soul who breaks the wire beneath its web. ... Between coils of pipes, nested in snarls of wires, peeking from holes in the cinder block, crouching in the air vents.
