A reluctant medium discovers the ties that bind can unleash a dangerous power in this compelling Malaysian-set contemporary fantasy.
Jessamyn Teoh is closeted, broke and moving back to Malaysia, a country she left when she was a toddler. So when Jess starts hearing voices, she chalks it up to stress. But there’s only one voice in her head, and it claims to be the ghost of her estranged grandmother, Ah Ma. In life Ah Ma was a spirit medium, the avatar of a mysterious deity called the Black Water Sister. Now she’s determined to settle a score against a gang boss who has offended the god–and she’s decided Jess is going to help her do it.
Drawn into a world of gods, ghosts, and family secrets, Jess finds that making deals with capricious spirits is a dangerous business. As Jess fights for retribution for Ah Ma, she’ll also need to regain control of her body and destiny. If she fails, the Black Water Sister may finish her off for good.
I’m very excited for this one, it looks great and I love Zen Cho’s writing. I’m super looking forward to this one. Also–that cover!!! Love it. Black Water Sister is expected May 11th, 2021.

Can’t really argue with that cover, although I thought the lamp things were mushrooms for the longest time.
I’m curious about this too, I think I’m mostly drawn to the cover but I will probably break down and read it at some point😁
Well, you know me and covers LOL. But I also do really enjoy Zen Cho’s writing. 🙂
I love the sound of this one with a medium as the main pov. And the cover is ace.
Yeah, it sounds amazing! And of course you know how I love covers haha. 🙂
