From the author of the Branford Boase long-listed debut The Whisperling, comes the next adventure in the legacy… Gloucester, 1918. Nin and Lemon Esmond share a special bond.

They’re sisters – twins – whisperlings. Which means they have the power to speak with ghosts. Britain is at war, and Lemon – the more daring of the pair – is frustrated that they have to stay at home.

Surely they can use their special gift to help in some way?Nin doesn’t share her sister’s need for adventure, but when they see reports of missing whisperlings in the papers, the twins know they must work together to solve what’s happening…before they’re next. Yet what awaits them on the dark streets of Gloucester isn’t simply an adventure, but a battle of their very own… Praise for The Whisperling:’One of the best debuts I’ve read in YEARS!’ – Emma Carroll’A thrilling Gothic page-turner’ – Jacqueline Wilson’A captivating and spine-tingling read…paints a vivid picture of the Victorian era’ – BookTrust’Sends multiple shivers down the spine and delivers thrilling twists along the way’ – LoveReading4Kids
