Popular paranormal romance writer Galenorn introduces a new series with all the magical mystery, romance, and suspense her fans could ask for. Kerris Fellwater ran away from remote Whisper Hollow when she was a young woman. Fifteen years later, she returns to settle her grandmother's estate and come to terms with her own paranormal powers. Kerris is a spirit shaman by birth, like her mother and her grandmother before her; she can talk to the dead and send them back through the veil to the spirit world. The spirits in Whisper Hollow reveal that the dead are returning through the veil, and Kerris must send them back. But before that, she must learn to control her powers and uncover the dark secrets of her own family, including the identity of her father and the whereabouts of her missing mother. With help from the local spiritualist society, her grandmother's ghost, and the "ruggedly handsome" shapeshifter next door, Kerris faces ancient powers and a prophecy that might mean her death. Galenorn's fans will enjoy this introduction to a new saga of arcane mayhem and mystic powers. Agent: Meredith Bernstein, Meredith Bernstein Literary Agency. (Nov.)
