Jessica Raven’s brother is going to die.
She dreams of finding a cure for Adam’s illness, but that isn’t going to happen.
While on holiday in France, she encounters a strange band of children, mysterious and ragged, who seem to urgently want HER help. Who are they? And who is Jean-Luc, their leader?
As she learns more, Jessica realises that the game they’re playing isn’t a game, that Jean-Luc is a prisoner, and the children aren’t children but nightmares, guarding a priceless treasure. Adam is the only one who could help them, but Adam is dying.
And his cure is trapped in the ghosts of a horrifying past . . .
