ABOUT OF DELICATE PIECES:
Of Delicate Pieces (Of Breakable Things)
By A. Lynden Rolland
Publication Date: November 10, 2015
Settling into her second year of death, Alex is ready to explore her limitless mind in an afterworld that changes each day, but she still isn’t resting in peace.
The ‘gifted’ are humans who see spirits and have the same extraordinary mental powers, though they aren’t considered equals. Centuries ago, Alex’s family led the movement to keep the living and dead separated, but the gifted believe Alex is a reincarnation of their slain civil leader. When they begin to break down the barriers that protect the city, the afterworld becomes dangerous and vulnerable to exposure. The living and dead both want to use Alex for their own gain, but what they don’t realize is that neither side will want her when they find out who she really is.
In the afterworld, nothing stays buried for long.
- If you didn’t read Of Breakable Things, the book begins on the first day of Alex Ash’s death when she enters the afterworld. In Of Delicate Pieces, Alex is still surprised by the power of her mind. For instance, she dreams about a beach and wakes up covered in sand:
She slid from her bed, and a stream of sand shimmied to the floor like a dash of rain, and the soles of her feet felt soft as though she’d been shuffling along the beach. After nearly a year, she still wasn’t accustomed to living in a world the mind could manipulate. It felt all too easy to straddle the thin line between fantasy and reality.
OF DELICATE PIECES is the follow-up to A. Lynden Rolland’s OF BREAKABLE THINGS.

FOLLOW UP TO:
A captivating debut about the fragility of life, love, and perspective.
When Chase dies tragically, Alex embraces her own mortality. What she didn’t expect was that she’d have to make a choice: forget the years of pain and suffering once and for all, or linger as a spirit and get another chance at life and love.
Alex doesn’t hesitate to choose; she’d follow Chase anywhere. But the spirit world is nothing like she expected, and Alex finds she’s forced to fight for her life once more. For even in a world where secrets are buried much deeper than six feet under, a legacy can continue to haunt you—and in a place this dangerous, no one is resting in peace.
