In the spirit of the Halo trilogy, this series from international best-selling author Alexandra Adornetto is guaranteed to be another hit from the talented young author who understands her audience like no other.

'Alex is more real that anyone I’ve ever know. And him being dead ... really doesn't change a thing.'

After the death of her mother, Chloe Kennedy starts seeing ghosts again. Spending time at her grandmother's country estate in the south of England helps Chloe deal with her grief and the spirits that haunt her. Until she meets a mysterious stranger.

Alexander Reade is 157 years dead, with a secretive past and an alluring force that draws Chloe more strongly than any ghost she's encountered before. But the bond between them infuriates the vengeful spirit of Alexander's past love, Isobel.

And she will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who threatens to take him from her.


Chloe is like every other teenager in California. Except for one thing – she can see ghosts.

When her Mum dies unexpectedly, Chloe and her brother Rory go to England with their Grandmother to give their Dad some time to himself.

Chloe finds strange things happening in Grange Hall and the quiet holiday she imagined becomes a nightmare when she upsets a very vengeful ghost. Throw in gorgeous student Joe, who works part time for her Grandmother, and sparks fly.

I thoroughly enjoyed this para-normal mystery, with its drama and romance thrown in. It has interesting and quirky characters and is best suited to girls Year 9 and up.
