Description

Rachel Holloway is a school teacher with an unremarkable life. That is, until one day when everything changes forever and she is given the gift (or is it curse?) of being able to see and speak with the dead - amongst others...

As she grapples with this strange new ability, she encounters many colourful characters, both living and dead. Some try to guide her, while others use her power for their own ends. 

When a girl is brutally murdered, Rachel is thrust further into a labyrinthine world of spirits that are trapped in a limbo state between earth and whatever lies beyond. She soon discovers that what lies in the shadows is legion and some things that exist in this dimension are far more evil than anyone could imagine.

A Note From the Publisher

Suzanne Linsey-Mitellas wrote her first book aged 8 for a WHSmith young writer competition, for which she got through to the finals, and in her primary school she even had a dedicated wall for her work. Her books draw from experiences passed from her spiritualist grandmother who revealed what lay beyond this realm.

Featured Reviews

I'm a big fan of all things spiritual, all things supernatural and so this book was calling out to me and I really enjoyed it. It was incredibly fast paced, and I sped through it.
It didn't feel particularly original - it felt very similar to 'ghost' the film, and also reminded me of the ITV drama series 'afterlife'. Despite it not feeling overly unique, it didn't hinder my enjoyment. I didn't feel that much happened, but I still loved it and felt super intrigued to continue and keep turning the pages. It's a really difficult one to review as I don;t want to spoil anything.

The book ended on a cliffhanger so Im hoping that another book will be on the way soon.

Suzanne Linsey-Mitellas takes one on a rollercoaster ride through the world of the living - and the dead. It is a theme Charles Williams (the third Inkling, alongside J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis explored in his 1945 novel All Hallows' Eve, with less success. R. Chetwynd-Hayes used a lighter touch in his 1993 novel The Psychic Detective. Suzanne has written a far superior story managing to bring realism and horror to a fantastic plot, and even allowing love to bridge the gap between the living and the dead.
There is clearly more to come in the next novel as the author leaves one on the intersection of the physical and the spiritual where an unmentionable evil still lurks. Will love conquer all?
