Read the first book in the Collector series: To Find the Collector
Tabytha can see dead people. The remnants of the departed are all around her. Day and night Tabytha can hear the dead crying about their unfulfilled dreams, their past lives, their loved ones long since lost. The tales of sadness and loneliness are never ceasing.
She hates her ability.
She can see them, and she can hear them; Tabytha does not have the power to speak to them.
In a non-descript strip club in Iowa, Tabytha finds a man who could remove her cursed power. However, Cyris is no ordinary man. He has lived a thousand years collecting the unnatural abilities that had leaked into humanity. He is the Collector.
At first, Tabytha was only interested in how he could remove her obscenity, make her understand how to live without the presence of death. But then he taught her she could love even in the midst of her tragedy.
"You love me because I can give you everything you ever wanted?" Cyris would say.
"Yes, and more."
