Autumn Albert can see the dead – much to her annoyance.

But when her dad dies in mysterious circumstances, he’s the

one ghost who doesn’t appear.

A curious instruction in his will sends Autumn to Imber, the storm-soaked

island of his childhood: a place marked by tight-lipped

locals, strange stacks of witchstones – and even fewer ghosts.

Soon Autumn is ensnared in a dark and twisty mystery, which must

be unravelled before the sea rises up and history is doomed to

repeat itself ...

The debut adventure for ages 9 and up from Emily Randall-Jones,

a breathtaking new talent
