Description

Winner of a Scottish Children's Book Award

The Morton family are cursed: their house is haunted by eerie footsteps, a ghostly figure and whispers in the night.

Fiona and new neighbour Samuel investigate the hauntings and discover a deadly tale of betrayal and revenge, and a family secret long forgotten.

Trapped by snow and ice, can the friends escape the chill or will the Morton children be doomed to repeat the past forever?

Reviews

'In both tales, Nye's prose is chilling and sparse, and works well to build tension as the ghost stories emerge... These scary stories are a great addition to any middle-grade collection.'
-- School Library Journal.'

'Alex Nye's involving Chill is set near Stirling, in a snowbound house with a ghost in the library. It's a tense confection of mystery, historical intrigue and adventure for 8-12 year olds. Young heroes Samuel and Fiona find they cannot ignore a call from the past to put things right.'
-- Lindsey Fraser, Sunday Herald
