Black Water Sister by Zen Cho

Her grandmother may be dead, but she’s not done with life… yet.

As Jessamyn packs for Malaysia, it’s not a good time to start hearing a bossy voice in her head.  Broke, jobless and just graduated, she’s abandoning America to return ‘home’.  But she last saw Malaysia as a toddler – and is completely unprepared for its ghosts, gods and her eccentric family’s shenanigans.

Jess soon learns her ‘voice’ belongs to Ah Ma, her late grandmother.  She worshipped the Black Water Sister, a local deity.  And when a business magnate dared to offend her goddess, Ah Ma swore revenge.  Now she’s decided Jess will help, whether she wants to or not.

As Ah Ma blackmails Jess into compliance, Jess fights to retain control.  But her irrepressible relative isn’t going to let a little thing like death stop her, when she can simply borrow Jess’s body to make mischief.  As Jess is drawn ever deeper into a world of peril and family secrets, getting a job becomes the least of her worries.

Peer & Press Reviews

Ghosts, gods, and supernatural vengeance collide in vividly-depicted modern day Malaysia to create a contemporary fantasy story that’s full of voice and heart.  At turns suspenseful, poignant and hilarious, Black Water Sister is an addictive tale of personal identity, family secrets, and culture clash.

Fonda Lee, author of Jade City

Cho’s multifaceted characters, like her masterful plot, are never quite what they first appear.  Unpredictable twists keep the pages turning while the comic but endearing relationship between Jess and her sassy grandmother provides the story’s heart.  This is must-read fantasy.

Publishers Weekly

Zen Cho’s brilliant and distinct voice brings worlds to life on the page.  A sharp and bittersweet story of past and future, ghosts and gods and family, that kept me turning pages into the dark hours of the night.

Naomi Novik, author of Uprooted
