A YA, paranormal experience, isn’t generally my usual reading of choice. However, not only has the premise captivated me and the alluring cover art captured my attention, but I am intrigued to discover why author Tony Lee Moral has decided to write a storyline so diverse in nature to his debut novel, ‘Playing Mrs. Kingston‘ and check out just how that works.
Tony writes such great guest posts, that I was really hoping to persuade him to stop by and visit again. Happily no persuasion was necessary, he was more than happy to oblige and “Ghost Maven, The Return To Romance” will be published here at Fiction Books, Monday 3rd October 2016, to coincide with the official launch of the book.
The Book – ‘GHOST MAVEN‘
Ghost Maven is the first in a series of Young Adult novels featuring Alice Parker, a 16 year old girl who discovers she has the power to slay ghosts.
Alice’s mother passes away and with her father and little sister, Sophie, she moves to Pacific Grove in California. Alice is deathly afraid of the water despite living in a community surrounded by it. In order to push through her phobia, she joins the Kayaking club in high school.
During a routine kayaking drill, a fog rolls in and Alice becomes disoriented, losing all sense of direction. A large wave turns the kayak over, dumping Alice into the icy-cold pacific. She nearly drowns when a young man dives in after her. . .Henry Raphael.
After Henry’s rescue, Alice gains more than her life. Henry is a beautiful seventeen-year-old or more accurately, one-hundred-seventeen years. The relationship between them takes Alice on a journey for which no one could prepare her.
Long distance relationships are difficult – how can Alice bridge a divide between planes? Henry died over a century ago but lives on in the fourth plane of existence waiting for an opportunity to atone for past deeds that caused the death of his ship’s entire crew. Their vengeance still hanging over his head, Henry and Alice learn their love will be tested by more than the passage of time and living in different dimensions.
