Description

A scream in the night, a hidden staircase to nowhere and a ghostly face: Dunadd House still has secrets.

For over 400 years something has been hidden in old Dunadd House, and as another dangerous winter descends Samuel and the Morton children discover it's not just the cold sending a shiver down their spine: not all their ghosts have been put to rest.

Can they unravel the family secret before they're forced to leave their home forever?

The bone-chilling sequel to Scottish Children's Book Award winner Chill.
