Six of Crows meets Disney's Atlantis and Indiana Jones in this captivating YA Fantasy series about a world powered by arcane ore ... and the crew of treasure hunters destined to save it.

He was supposed to collect the dead. Instead, he rescued a single soul. Now watching her adventure, he's faced with making the ultimate sacrifice.

The House of Matchsticks is calling ...

The Collector doesn't know how to fix what he's undone. Ever since impulsively saving the baby in the rowboat, the Collector has spent his days trying to keep everything he's known from unravelling. But the greater his fascination with human mortality grows-along with the sudden, shocking urge to take just one life-giving breath-the more he fears intervening would cost him eternity.

With the girl he saved long ago and her party of treasure hunters prepping for a dive into the mines in search of lost history, tensions run high as the Collector confronts the collision of past and present. And terrified of his own confused longings, Death must make a choice between normality... and sacrificing his status to set things right.

House of Matchsticks is a third person, multi-POV series with found family, enemies to lovers slow-burn romance (straight and LGBTQ+), and a healthy dose of action/adventure. This is Part 2 in the series. Expect a cliffhanger.
