A chilling ghost story told, with humour by a well-known Irish author and storyteller.
Twelve-year-old Cian has recently inherited his great-uncle’s spooky manor house. On his first visit he senses a chill in the air, then sees an eerie blue glow from outside his bedroom window. Cian discovers that the house, and those within it, are under a terrible curse dating back to the reign of King Henry VIII of England. Because of his name, only he, Cian, has the power to lift it. He has to enlist the help of his younger, but fearless sister and together they overcome the power and the danger of an immovable force. Action-packed, this is a fast-moving and unputdownable thriller.
