After the traumatic events of the Rennick Parish Poltergeist, Libby Butler is living a less than idyllic life in Sutherland, unable to find the peace from her past she so desperately craves. A terrifying event rekindles her gift (or curse) of seeing death in a person before their actual demise, and plunges her into terrible danger. All too soon she is fulfilling the role of an ancient family destiny and investigating the legend of the Highland Ban Sith, a female spirit who can be seen and heard howling by the person who is doomed to die.
Ban Sith is the thrilling sequel to the bestselling The Ghost Tree, and is the final book in the gripping Libby Butler paranormal series.
Libby Butler’s life is a mess. Her career as a solicitor in a prestigious London law firm is going nowhere fast, just like the ill-advised affair with her boss. Then a terrifying, life-threatening encounter with the notorious Vampire Killer, a knife-wielding serial murderer, leaves Libby with her courage and confidence shattered.
Desperate to pick up the pieces of her life, duty calls Libby to the cells of a Metropolitan police station in the middle of the night. There she meets mysterious and enigmatic stranger Gabriel Radley, a man on intimate terms with danger and who has a habit of disappearing from police custody. Gabriel is searching for a Stone he has lost, its value beyond human imagination, that will help bring a monster to justice.
When Libby agrees to help him find the Stone she senses a chance at redemption, but unwittingly plunges headfirst into a series of events that threaten to tear her world apart. A cult called The Awakened, a gangland thug and his vicious henchman, a deadly female assassin, a dedicated detective chief inspector and even the Vampire Killer – all become embroiled in the chase for the Stone and influenced by the elemental force that is Gabriel.
As the death toll rises, Libby is forced to face her true self, learn the ultimate value of life and discover the potent significance of the Sleeping Warrior within.
The novel is an action-packed exploration of good versus evil and its blend of realism and fantasy absolutely works. What a debut! One of my favourite reads of the year so far. – Lucy Literati
