Description

BOOK TWO PRECIOUS CATASTROPHE, COMING 30th SEPTEMBER

PLEASE NOTE THIS A SAMPLER, NOT THE FULL BOOK

Twin sisters. An isolated community. Generations of dark secrets...

Madeline and Catlin move to Ballyfrann, a strange isolated Irish town, a place where the earth is littered with small corpses and unspoken truths. A place where, for generations, teenage girls have gone missing in the surrounding mountains.

Distance grows between the twins - as Catlin falls in love, and as Madeline begins to understand her own nascent witchcraft.

But when Catlin falls into the gravest danger of all, Madeline discovers that Ballyfrann is a place full of predators. Madeline must ask herself who she really is - or rather, who she might have to become to save her sister.

Featured Reviews

Two teenage sisters move with their mum and step dad, into a castle within a forest in Ireland, built by an old eccentric dude, in an area where the bodies of dismembered teenage girls have been found...I think I just found my Halloween read! This book sounds creepy as heck, in the best way, thank you for the sample. Even from just the first chapter it's clear that Deirdre Sullivan is a beautifully skilled and clever writer, I honestly can't wait to read the whole book now.
