In his words:
"DEAD GIRL is the story of sixteen-year-old Dahlia Grove, who is trapped in the Shadow Lands, a parallel reality where packs of feral children battle monsters for survival in a haunted city. She has one week to escape. If she fails, she dies. DEAD GIRL."
Says Mark: "If you know someone who enjoys urban fantasy, whether it's Harry Potter or Harry Dresden, I think they'll like this story. ... Writing and editing this book has been a long haul, and I'm excited about finally getting it out to readers."
Mark is good people and an excellent writer and editor. You should read this. Then buy his other books.
