From the acclaimed author of the Mercy series and The Astrologer's Daughter.



Since her parents died in a freak motorbike accident, Sophie Teague's life has fallen apart.



But she's just enrolled at a new high school, hoping for a fresh start.



That's until Eve, a beautiful ghost in black, starts making terrifying nightly appearances, wanting Sophie to be her hands, eyes and go-to girl.



There are loose ends that Eve needs Sophie to tie up. But dealing with the dead might just involve the greatest sacrifice of all.



Dark, thrilling and unrelentingly eerie, Afterlight will take you deep into the heart of a dangerous love story, revealing the otherworldly-and deadly-pull of past wrongs that only the living can put right.
