Secrets of Carrick: Ghostheart

By Ananda Braxton-Smith

**eBook Edition** An exciting new addition to this magical, mythical series.

In Carrick things are changing and Mally needs to change too. Her brothers and sisters are fearless, light as scuds, quick as hoppers. Not Mally. She knows too many secrets. Mally is frightened – frozen at the edge of the shore. Out of nowhere comes Dolyn Craig – a sneak and a bully. But that’s not the worst of it. He wants something from Mally. But what? Ghostheart is the third book set in the Secrets of Carrick universe and brings young adult fiction readers back to the magical world of Celtic mythology. Australian author Ananda Braxton-Smith fuses literary fantasy with mystery in this atmospheric tale of mental illness and self-discovery. Teen girls will love this novel and devour the others in the series, Merrow and Tantony. Merrow and Tantony were Notable books at the Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards and finalists in the Young Adult Fiction category of the Aurealis Awards. “Exquisite. A beautiful, lush, haunting story – one that stays with the reader long after the last word is read.” Magpies “Ananda Braxton-Smith’s tales propel readers into worlds with a vivacity and rawness, illuminating horror and beauty.” Magpies “Lush, rich and achingly beautiful.” The Courier Mail “The world of Carrick is stark and beautiful, cruel and magical, encircled by the unforgiving sea. From the opening sentence, I entered the cave of this story willingly, bewitched by the eerie poetry of Ananda’s words, and stepped out encrusted in salt, gritty with sand, and haunted.” Carole Wilkinson
