Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead...

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Crescent Lake in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I'm Kerris Fellwater, and I'm a spirit shaman. It's my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people— and secrets— don’t always stay buried.

Veronica, Queen of the Unliving, requests my presence. Something has happened in Whisper Hollow—there’s a new menace around, and it’s not only attacking the living, but also the denizens of her Court. Now, Bryan and I must enlist the help of the dead in order to keep the spirit world—and the citizens of Whisper Hollow--safe.
