Product Description

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE RAVEN SAGA, COMES A BRAND NEW YA SERIES PACKED WITH TWISTS, EMOTION AND ADVENTURE

"This book is a great start to a potentially brilliant series"

Adopted sisters Lana Beth and Emma Jane are polar opposites, but when the same strange 'tattoo' suddenly appears and winds its way up their bodies within days of each other, they soon realize there's more to their relationship than they could ever have imagined.

Sent off to London for two weeks of 'work experience', the Morgan Sisters soon find themselves being initiated into the ancient Praxos Foundation, one that protects the innocent while fighting evil, both human and supernatural.

At the same time, Lana Beth and Emma Jane must also investigate why the sweet but sometimes pesky ghost of Josiah Grimshaw just won't leave them alone.

˃˃˃ "I would go so far as to say that this book could be the beginnings of a series as good as those by J.K. Rowling!"

˃˃˃ "I loved the bad guys, the graveyard antics, the talking dead, the superpowers of the kick-a** ninja chicks, and the rite of initiation the sisters go through"

The Algarve continues to be her home, where she lives with her childhood sweetheart husband Michael, Roxy (their dog), Hermione, Robbie, Scully and Poppy (their cats) and their newest addition, Podengo puppy, Luna.
Suzy's career began soon after completing her A levels when she was offered the position of trainee journalist for a local English newspaper. Her love of writing developed and a few years later she moved on to become assistant editor for the region's largest English language publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! 6 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a lot of books dealing with paranormal mysteries and I must this is one was quite a page turner. A very witty and intriguing plot, impossible to let the book down to go to sleep! A word of caution though... Be ready to spend much time on Mrs' Tuner books cuz once you started one, you'll want to read them all!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy with ghosts and romance 23 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was slightly out of my comfort zone with this book, as my usual reading diet is crime, suspense, and action. However, I do like a good ghost story as well which was why I was drawn to it.

Emma and Lana are two adopted sisters and as the story evolves it becomes obvious they have special powers. The first section of the book where they discover a mysterious boy washed up by the sea, and then the death by drowning of the elderly Josiah Grimshaw was full of suspense and really kept me guessing, which is what I like in a book.

Lana is afraid of heights, so when she feels impelled to climb to the pinnacle of Carlton Point, not only was she terrified. I was too. And then when she stood on the edge of the sheer drop my heart was in my mouth, and here is how it felt for Lana - She could feel her heart beating, feel it thudding in her chest. She couldn't open her mouth; it was too dry. All she wanted to do was scream but she couldn't even do that . . . A sudden massive gust of wind took her feet from beneath her and she was forcefully pushed from the top of Carlton Point, falling silently and peacefully to the rocky hills below. End of chapter. Now that really is strong writing and a terrific cliff hanger.

There is a similar scene with Emma who is afraid of water. She is on a ferry when a voice entered her head and told her to jump . . . Her face was as white as a sheet, but her body didn't seem to care as she thre herself from the boat into the cold waters of the Thames estuary.

The mystery deepens when the girls travel to London for a work placement, but this is no ordinary work placement. By this time the girls have developed their special powers and they join a group of young people who also have special powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Promising New Series 18 Nov 2012
By Monica
Format:Kindle Edition
I just finished this book and really, really loved it. It's well-written and a lot of fun, and I found myself trying to eat it all up in one sitting, as I had to find out what happened next to the two Morgan sisters. :) I won't spoil any of the plot, but let me say that Emma and Lana were believable and real as they worked together to discover who they were, unravel the mystery of their origin and find their place in a very surprising future. I would highly recommend this series for any lover of fantasy and the supernatural of any age...I am well over the target YA demographic and I absolutely loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Different Twist on YA Paranormal 9 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw' is the story of two adopted girls Emma and Lana as they turn sixteen and some strange incidents lead them to the truth about their destinies.

I thought this was an easy, enjoyable read. The characters are believable and it felt like a different twist on the usual teen paranormal novel. Although it's quite a common thing in YA paranormal books for the main characters to develop powers, I thought the story in this one was really unique and had some fun and surprising elements to it.

I will say that this was written for older children/younger teens, so it wasn't totally my kind of book, but it was very well written and there were enough interesting developments to keep me reading regardless of the age range it was intended for.

Overall this is just the start of what looks to be a very interesting and different paranormal series. It's a clean read and easy to get in to. Recommended to fans of YA Paranormal.

MY REVIEW
I received this book free from Suzy Turner in exchange for my honest opinion and review.
So starting with the cover, which I did like prior to reading the book, the scene actually makes even more sense to you once you have read the book. The sisters look as different than chalk and cheese yet we find out later in the book they are closer than they ever thought. I won't give more details as it would give away too much in my opinion.
So basically the book is primarily about the Morgan sisters, Lana and Emma. they were adopted by their now parents when they were just babies. They literally were found on their now parents doorsteps! Upon reaching the age of 16 their lives begin to change... they develop certain "skills" which is quite confusing to them. Around about the same time they are to do work experience and as they live on the rather small island of Andilyse, it is arranged for them to stay with a friend of their fathers in London. Everything begins to be explained upon being introduced to the people at Praxos. Who is Praxos? Well they are a group of supernaturals who fight evil in what ever form it takes. Of course for every group of "good" people there is bad and the "bad" Supernaturals that fight against Praxos are called "The Skulls". The story has action, fighting evil, friendship, love and of course danger! and mystery!
The book is well written and very descriptive to help the reader visualize the places and people being written about. The book is aimed at the 8+ market of readers and I feel that the book fits this age group upwards very well. I would go so far as to say that this book could be the beginnings of a series as good as those by J.K. Rowling!
