'I wanted answers instantly.

Come to think of it, answers would have been helpful before I moved to this cursed strip of sand.

Why couldn't Mr. Talbot have said, "Oh yes, the home is lovely. There are some sea monsters with hands like Schwarzenegger and your eyeballs may start to glow in the dark, but other than that, the place is great."'
Sweet dream...or a waking nightmare?

For Eila Walker, inheriting a million dollar Cape Cod home is a dream come true. Her and her legal guardian Mae can have a fresh start - putting behind them the hardships of the past. Mean cheerleaders & weird neighbours aside, the whole thing seems too good to be true.

That is, until Eila realises she's inherited more than a house. She's also inherited a deadly legacy.

The present and the past collide.

Finding out her great-grandmother was a kind of magical warrior is the least of Eila's worries. Because the evil that her great-grandmother sacrificed herself to destroy is still out there, lurking in the shadows one-hundred and sixty years later.

And it'll do anything to get its hands on Eila. The last of her kind...and the key to limitless power.

With the darkly handsome and protective Raef O’Reilly - plus her friends Ana and MJ and Raef's brother Kian - by her side, Eila must unravel the mystery surrounding her great-grandmother's death if she's to save the lives of those she loves.

But at what cost?

Undertow is an intensely thrilling paranormal tale that will pull you into its depths from the very first chapter.

With clever plot construction and a great cast of characters, this book has all the makings of a great YA novel. It will be interesting to see how Kate Conway develops the concepts in Undertow further as the series progresses :)

A new heroine rises in a darkened corner of the world. Join her on her journey today.
