Sarah and Mac survived a terrifying encounter with a vengeful ghost in book #1 of this series, ending up happy and settled together, but nothing could have prepared them for the way their world is turned topsy-turvy in book #2 by the arrival of an elusive figure on their land. Quite what – or who – is the wild, half-starved boy Sarah sees near the grave of Mac’s son?
Meara has created a truly unique character in Rabbit – a child raised in complete isolation from the modern world. The only people he has ever known are his grandparents, and when he is suddenly left alone, he undertakes a perilous journey to locate the man his gran – who has ‘the Sight’ – instructs Rabbit to find with her dying breath. The man who looks exactly like Mac.
Rabbit’s reactions to everything, from the magic of electricity, to living under a roof, to the sound of music, are wondrous, and ring so true for how a complete innocent might genuinely regard such miracles. And Rabbit’s charming dialogue is such fun to read!
Add Meara’s signature supernatural twist, when it transpires that Rabbit’s gran has passed her gift onto him, and you have a tale that is heart-warming, shocking, scary, and truly satisfying, all rolled into one. Once more, I stayed up far later than I should to keep reading another chapter, and another, and then did the same as I did on finishing book #1, going straight on to the next one without pause.
Highly recommended.
