In The Returned, people’s loved ones are returning from beyond all over the world. No one knows how or why, whether it’s a miracle or a sign of the end. It’s not a zombie book (sorry, zombie fans!) but this paranormal twist helps explore timeless questions of faith and morality, love and responsibility through the story of a couple dealing with the return of their 8-year-old son, who hasn’t changed a day since his tragic death in the ’60s.

About The First:
In Jason Mott’s haunting and unforgettable debut novel, The Returned, an impossible miracle is occurring all across the globe. Read how it all begins in this short story, The First.
It’s been just over a year since Edmund Blithe died, and just over a month since his fiancée, Emily, stopped wearing her engagement ring. Emily has finally begun to move on… Until Edmund mysteriously and inexplicably returns, sending the world–and Emily–into a tailspin.
Edmund is only just the beginning. Around the world, people’s loved ones are returning from beyond, seeking only to reenter the lives they left behind. As the world dives deep into uncertainty, Emily and Edmund are determined to find their way back to one another…even if it means risking everything.
