Product description

‘Are you brave?’ If a strange girl pops up at your window in the dead of night and asks you this, just say no. Honestly, it’s easier. If Kirby had said no to Amelia (the girl), maybe he wouldn’t have tumbled into a world of ancient evil spirits. Chances are, he wouldn’t even have noticed they were attacking his quiet seaside village. Kirby isn’t feeling brave. His mum is in a coma after a freak (or was it?) accident. He’s hardly talking to his dad, and a spider seems to be spying on him. Now this weird girl in a yellow raincoat – who claims to be a powerful, evil-bashing Shadowsmith – is dragging him into danger. Is he brave enough to tell her to get lost?

  • A dazzling fantasy by the magnificent Ross MacKenzie
