Rain of the Ghosts
(Rain Cacique #1)
by Greg Weisman
Paperback, 240 pages
Expected publication: December 3rd 2013
by St. Martin's Griffin

Rain of the Ghosts is the first in Greg Weisman's series about an adventurous young girl, Rain Cacique, who discovers she has a mystery to solve, a mission to complete and, oh, yes, the ability to see ghosts.

Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them: the Ghost Keys), a beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. Rain Cacique is water-skiing with her two best friends Charlie and Miranda when Rain sees her father waiting for her at the dock. Sebastian Bohique, her maternal grandfather, has passed away. He was the only person who ever made Rain feel special. The only one who believed she could do something important with her life. The only thing she has left to remember him by is the armband he used to wear: two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other’s tails in their mouths. Only the armband . . . and the gift it brings: Rain can see dead people. Starting with the Dark Man: a ghost determined to reveal the Ghost Keys’ hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure.

Why "I-Can't-Wait-To-Read" these!

 Rain of the Ghosts sounds like such an exciting new Young Adult series featuring an adventurous girl, a mystery, Ghosts, a magical talismans. I love that the location is set in a tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. The end line of the blurb really grabs me: "Ghost Keys’ hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure."

and 

I'm really excited to check out Kelley Armstrong's new Young Adult series. I love that the Sea of Shadows is featuring two heroines who are trained in fighting (kick-butt) and the setting of Edgewood sounds like a perfect combination supernatural and horror. I really enjoyed reading books from The Women of the Otherworld series and can't wait to see what magic and creatures she has in store for us. Oh yeah, there is of course suppose to be some swoon-worthy romance too. Beast, Spirits, and Boys-Oh My!
