Description
Pike, the #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author of the Wings series, shines in this stand-alone novel that offers a humorous twist on ghosts. Kimberlee Schaffer may be drop-dead gorgeous . . . but she also dropped dead last year. Now she needs Jeff's help with her unfinished business, and she's not taking no for an answer.



About the Author

Aprilynne Pike has been spinning faerie stories since she was a child with a hyperactive imagination. She completed her BA in creative writing at the age of twenty at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. Aprilynne lives with her husband and children in Arizona.




Praise For Life After Theft

Praise for the Wings series:“WINGS is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds.”
-Stephenie Meyer, bestselling author of the Twilight Saga

Mixing a little bit of Harry Potter and a lot of Twilight, Pike has hit on a winning combination. Yet it is her own graceful take on life inside Avalon that adds a shimmering patina sure to enthrall readers.”
-Booklist (starred review)

“Silky narration, delicious escapism.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Pike’s clever and innovative way of reinventing fairy tales and myths to make them her own is wonderful...[The] story is rich in vivid details, action, adventure, and romance.”
-Romantic Times (Top Pick)

“The series is action-packed, and the final chapters of the story are no exception. A thrilling page-turner, many readers will read the book cover-to-cover, barely daring to breath.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)

“SPELLS is brilliant and lovely. Aprilynne Pike’s talent just continues to bloom and I am almost afraid to see how awesome her next book will be.”
-Carrie Jones, bestselling author of NEED and CAPTIVATE

Who knew faeries could be this cool? ILLUSIONS has it all. It’s fascinating, rich, and romantic, and weaves a great new tapestry of thrilling fantasy.”
-Lisa McMann, bestselling author of the Wake trilogy

“The greatest part: the WINGS series reaches the perfect ending. The worst part: it has to end!”
-Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling autho of the Evernight series
