Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.

Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl—a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.

Gillian Shields's electrifying tale will dazzle readers with suspense, mysticism, and romance.

    " I was skeptical at first since I don't usually read romances. I LOOOOOVVVVEEEDDD it! It was very good and I loved how the author worded things and her writing style too. "

    " The story had a really promising beginning but it fell flat a few chapters in. I did not care about Evie and I had to force myself to finish this book, continually hoping that it would get better as the story dragged on. It never did and I regret purchasing this book and wasting hours of my life reading it. "

    " Not as good as I'd hoped but I couldn't put it down because I was curious to see how it all ended "

    " I was really disappointed in this book. I was expecting a lot more. It just seemed to drag on an didn't give the reader anything. Then I read Hex Hall and it was everything I thought this book would be (yes I'm plugging another book in this review). "

About the Author
Author Gillian Shields

Gillian Shields is the author of Immortal, Betrayal, and Eternal, the first books about the sisterhood of the Mystic Way, as well as many other books for young readers. She spent her childhood roaming over the Yorkshire moors and dreaming of the Brontë sisters. After studying in Cambridge, London, and Paris, she became a teacher. She has taught in a girls’ boarding school and also in a drama school where it was rumored that the ghost of a young girl could be heard crying in the night. Gillian was inspired to write a series in celebration of the power of first love, the strength of female friendship, and the haunting mystery of the past.
