Quick overview To defeat what is rising from Ireland’s haunted heart, Caitlyn McCabe must face an adventure that is, literally, life and death. Young Adult Fantasy/Fiction 12-14 years
€12.99

‘You’re such a freak, Caitlyn McCabe’
She sees ghosts. Everywhere. All the time. It’s a pain.

The ability to see floating nuns, dark highwaymen and phantom warriors is not one Caitlyn McCabe asked for, any more than she chose to have eyes of different colours or a growing attraction to Danny, the boy at school who somehow haunts himself. But her gift is undeniable, forcing Caitlyn to share her life with a host of quirky spirits as she tries to navigate a ‘normal’ day of bullies, boys and Gran’s bad cooking.

And then Professor Sackimum Brody steps into her life and no day will be normal again. Mortal yet mysterious, the Professor seems to know far more about Caitlyn and her lost parents than he tells, even as he guides her to understanding the secret of her gift. When at last he offers a glimpse into a deeper realm, one where an ancient evil is stirring, Caitlyn is plunged towards an impossible truth and a threat to her worlds.
