Samatar, Sofia  
A Stranger in Olondria
Jevick has been raised on stories of Olondria, a land where books are as common as they are rare in his home. When he takes his merchant father's place on a selling trip to Olondria, Jevick's life is as close to perfect as he can imagine, until he is pulled off course and becomes haunted by the ghost of an illiterate young girl. He seeks the aid of Olondrian priests, only to become a pawn in the struggle between the empire's two most powerful cults. As the country shimmers on the cusp of war, he must face his ghost and learn her story before he has any chance of setting her free, an ordeal that challenges his understanding of art and life, home and exile, and the limits of that seductive necromancy, reading.
