Just when Piper begins to accept her new role as demon slayer, a fresh threat rises. People are disappearing, and Piper is sure a sinister, otherworldly force is at play.
Add to that ghosts who show up out of thin air, warning her of a danger she won’t be able to outrun, and a freaking bevy of supernatural creatures hiding in the background, and Piper suddenly has her hands full. Especially when the new creatures aren’t demons, or ghosts and she has no idea how to deal with them.
Or whether or not they be good little monsters, or bad.
There is one man who has the knowledge she needs to survive but she can’t even count on him. Why? The bastard left town.
One thing is certain: a big bad demon’s come to town and Piper has to stop him—but she needs help to do it.
If only she could figure out whom to trust…

Piper Lancaster might be Asheville’s most popular ghost whisperer, but she's an unbeliever. While her clients believe she’s exorcising their ghosts, Piper knows she’s really helping them settle their inner demons—because any sane person knows ghosts aren't real.
After the astonishing reappearance of the ruins of the Lost Colony of Roanoke, belief in the supernatural is at an all-time high, and people are seeing ghosts in every shadow. Business is better than ever. But there's one problem—the reemergence of the Lost Colony has awakened both the supernatural world and Piper's very real talent as a medium.
She's soon confronted with evidence she can't deny. Ghosts exist, and worse, so do demons. As if that weren't enough, Asheville has a new resident demon that's intent on killing her, and a sinfully handsome stranger who says she's the only one who can destroy it.
Barely able to accept the complete reversal in her convictions, Piper must discover-and embrace—her true identity before it's too late.
PRAISE OF THE PALACE OF LOST MEMORIES
"It captured my imagination and curiosity so deeply that I could not stop reading until the end." ~ ★★★★★ reviewer Patricia.
"enticing, engaging, and magical." ~ ★★★★★ reviewer love2readbooks.
The king's magnificent palace was built in a matter of weeks. No one saw the builders, no villagers are allowed beyond the gilded gate, and only one servant has ever left. The haunted look in her eyes as she was recaptured by the palace guards is something Josie, daughter of the village doctor, has never forgotten.
For Josie, the palace is a mystery that grows more intriguing after she meets the captain of the guards, a man known only as Hammer, as mysterious and captivating as the palace itself. Whispers of magic fuel Josie's desire to uncover the truth, but an ordinary girl like her can only dream of ever being invited inside.
When the king decides to take a wife from among the eligible daughters of the noble families, the palace gates are finally thrown open and the kingdom's elite pour in. In a court where old rivalries and new jealousies collide, the king's favorite is poisoned and the doctor is summoned. As her father's assistant, Josie finally sees inside the lavish walls, but she soon learns the palace won't surrender its secrets easily, for not a single resident, from the lowest servant to the king himself, has a memory from before the palace existed.
In the search for the truth, Josie is drawn deeper into danger, and the answers she seeks might shake the very foundations of the kingdom.
