Synopsis

“A mother’s love has no limits. It can drive her to extremes.”

Asia is best friends with her mother. They see each other almost every day. But her mother is dead: she killed herself when Asia was a baby. Somehow, though, she sends dreams of herself to Asia, and Asia loves the dreams and has gotten to know her mother very well.

But Asia has another dream, a dream in which she dies. This dream sometimes repeats and repeats until she is terrified of going to sleep. She never talks about the dreams to anyone, but they dominate her life to the point where she seeks the help of a psychologist.

In therapy, she begins to discover things about her mother that she didn’t know, or didn’t know she knew. One of those she finds particularly shocking. From that point on, she begins a battle with her mother that escalates until the very end of the book, when she discovers the horrible truth about death fairies.
The Death Fairy is remarkable because, in an age where graphic brutality is the norm, it contains virtually no violence. It’s like a murder mystery with no murder. Or perhaps, after all, there is one little murder...
