The Morton family are cursed and their home, old Dunadd House, is haunted by ghostly figures and whispers in the night.

Trapped by snow and ice in the remote Stirlingshire countryside, can the Morton children and their friend Samuel unravel the family's secrets and lift the ghostly curse. Or will they be doomed to repeat the past forever?

Chill was the winner of a Scottish Children's Book Award and Shiver is its bone-chilling sequel.


Praise for Chill:

'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.'
-- Sunday Herald
