A Life in Limbo
Musings of the horror writer Carmilla Voiez.

Two worlds are juxtaposed in this book by Carmilla Voiez – the disciplined glamour of ballet and the gritty reality of insurrectionists squatting in London, England. The Ballerina and the Revolutionary straddles genres as Crow, its gender-queer protagonist, demands their story be heard. Part ghost story, part urban fantasy bound together in this coming of age tale of self-acceptance.
Vivienne realizes she is dying. All she wants to do is see her daughter Giselle one last time and apologise. But Giselle no longer exists and it is Crow, a gender-queer anarchist, who returns to a family home that is plagued by ghosts and violent memories.
With the help of a shaman ze met in a dream, Crow unravels terrifying family secrets, hoping to find closure at last. But can anyone survive the shadows that lurk behind these fairy tales?
