’Alluring . . . hints of sophisticated academic magic will draw you in'
- Olivie Blake, author of The Atlas Six on The Library of the Dead

Ghoststalker Ropa Moyo learns a shocking truth about her family. But after she confronts her grandmother with the revelation, Gran is murdered and Ropa is now the prime suspect on top of dealing with her loss.

Ropa races to uncover the real murderer, and soon finds a connection to an old magical cult. They are trying to take control of Scotland by resurrecting an army of the dead, led by a dark lord. She'll have to use all her magic and hard-won skills in her biggest challenge yet.

An absolute delight . . . kept me totally hooked
