9780060728199: The Riddles of Epsilon

A haunting mystery

Jess White, age 14, has been uprooted from her home and taken to live on a remote yet populated island, at the whim of her parents – Mum is an artist; Dad a photographer. While she is bemoaning her new (lack of) life to her best friend via computer chatroom, they are interrupted by a third party – although only Jess is aware of the presence that calls itself ‘V’.

This is the start of a most extraordinary and creepy mystery as Jess finds herself caught up in a cycle of deadly occurences that has apparently happened before and seems intent on being re-enacted through her and her family. Unable to ignore or stop the process of events, Jess (and the reader) unravel the clues, guided only by the enigmatic Epsilon – who may or may not be real/mortal/"Good".

Product Description:

Something dark has awoken on the remote island of Lume

Jess is not pleased when her parents drag her off to live on the weird little island of Lume. But then she encounters an eerie presence in an abandoned cottage, and her anger turns to fear when it begins to lead her through a series of creepy riddles. As she slowly unravels the mysteries of Lume, she finds the writings of Sebastian, a boy who lived one hundred years ago and whose life contains unsettling reflections of her own. To her horror, the dangers he unearthed in 1894 now begin to threaten Jess and her family . . . and if Jess does not unlock the riddles in time, she may lose her mother forever.
