Nothing is as it seems in Meridia Falls... Join Logan Collins, as he takes his first steps into a world of magic, meets the girl of his dreams – and uncovers the mysteries entwined around his life, and his soul... THE SPARK #1 A hidden magic lies in wait... “10 years ago, I watched as my sister was dragged through a mysterious white door that stood alone in a forest. My mom, stepdad, and an army of shrinks tried to convince me it was my dad that had taken Cassie. They told me he’d taken us hiking in the forest, intending to kidnap us both. That he dragged Cassie, kicking and screaming, into the trunk of his white car. That I got away and my mind invented the whole stupid door business to cope. Eventually, I believed them. My dad is on death row, where he belongs. My sister? I never saw her again. Now, I want to forget and start over. No one knows me in Meridia Falls. It’s time for a new beginning, a new horizon – and a new Logan Collins...” SUNBURST #2 What secrets hide behind the door...? “I moved to Meridia Falls to start a new life. To forget my past and become someone new. I thought things would be normal here. That I could move on from witnessing my father kidnapping my sister. That I could forget what endless shrinks had finally convinced me was a coping hallucination – a strange white door, alone in the forest, that I watched my sister be dragged through. That I could finally stop hearing her screams... I should have known that wouldn’t be possible. Nothing is normal in Meridia Falls. The school injects its students with mysterious vaccines. People have gone missing. Time seems to freeze, and a touch of skin can transmit thoughts, feelings – whole lifetimes. Or maybe it’s just me who isn’t normal. Because, before me, in the forest, stands a white door. The same strange white door. And I’m about to walk through it...” ENCHANTERS #3 When all is lost, a ghost of hope shows the way... “I thought that losing my sister was the worst thing that could ever happen to me. That having my father on death row for her kidnapping and suspected murder was the most pain I’d have to endure. I was wrong... Now, I’ve lost everything. But this time – there may be a chance to get it back. To fix things. To save at least one person I love. Because, it turns out, that team of shrinks was wrong. I didn’t hallucinate my sister being dragged through a strange white door to avoid facing the reality of what my father did. I didn’t imagine every strange thing that happened after. I’m not crazy... I’m an Enchanter... And I’m not the only one. Now, my friends and I will have to team up with other Enchanters to try and save the only person left that matters to me – and maybe start putting my life back together...” AFFINITY #4 There’s nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide... “My dad is innocent. After all those years of thinking he kidnapped my sister, I find out the truth – and it leaves me with more questions than answers. Trouble is, my dad was executed before I could even ask the questions. One of his friends offers some solace – as well as even more unknowns. And now, time is running out. Escaped prisoners – pure evil, and pure power – are tracking me for my rare, magical blood – and they will find me. Meridia Falls isn’t safe, but nowhere else is, either. In the midst of darkness, a message of hope leads me and my friends to search for a key, a key that could unlock all of the secrets, all of the answers. Unfortunately, that key is in a place from my worst nightmares. And if I go there, I’m not sure I can ever come back – or if I’ll ever be the same...” THE DARK #5 (SERIES FINALE) As all eyes close, the dark eye opens... “Everyone I love is gone. Penny, my sister Cassie, and now my dad too. Ever since I arrived in Meridia Falls, a sinister magic has ripped away any hint of happiness. It’s like I’m one step away from falling into an abyss of despair. But everything is not lost. I have new friends, friends I can trust. And there is hope too. We’ve found my beloved Penny. She’s a prisoner in a secret vault under Stonehenge. All we need to do is rescue her and I will be complete again. Trouble is, as well as making new friends, I’ve made new enemies. Enemies intent on using me for their own dark needs. As Penny waits frozen in time, these enemies threaten to steal my very soul.” If you like Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins, or Teri Terry, you will LOVE this MERIDIA FALLS Boxset.

The first three books in the Agnes Barton Paranormal Mysteries series, Haunted Hijinks, Ghostly Hijinks, and Spooky Hijinks. Haunted Hijinks Ever since Agnes’ car accident, things have changed drastically for her. When she wakes up in the hospital, not only is her son Stuart there, who she hasn’t seen in years, but a ghostly apparition! Instead of getting ready for the loony bin, Agnes and Eleanor help ready the Butler Mansion for a grand opening as a bed and breakfast on Halloween, except they find the body of Katherine Clark. It’s game on, as usual, for Agnes, except she now has a new partner, one who has remained silent and is—well—a ghost. Agnes now struggles to keep her wits, keeping her ghostly companion a secret from Eleanor, not such an easy feat since Eleanor is sharp as a tack. Not only that, but where has Stuart been all of these years and what is he up to? Ghostly Hijinks Driving up Highway 50 through Nevada, said to be the loneliest road in America, sure would make a body nervous. Unless, of course, you’re Agnes Barton, who welcomes the challenge and the chance to check out a real ghost town. But before she even arrives in Silver, Nevada, a mystery has unfolded in the form of a lost little girl, Rebecca, who has become separated from her family who are searching for the elusive Leister’s gold. The real kicker is that Agnes saw it all in a dream, but when they arrive at the Goldberg Hotel & Saloon, she realizes so many things about her dream are real, like the details of the inside of the hotel. It isn’t long before she learns that the hotel is haunted by various spirits from the past, further making for an interesting vacation. Agnes is determined to find the missing family, insisting that it simply wasn’t just a dream as she learns that a family with a young daughter had indeed disappeared in the middle of the night just before they had arrived. Will Agnes and Eleanor find the missing family before they perish from the elements, or will the knife-wielding spirit called “The Cutter,” shorten their chances? Spooky Hijinks It’s December in the neighboring cities of Tawas City and East Tawas, and they have one thing in common—Christmas is drawing nearer. The only problem is that homes are being broken into in alarming numbers, with guns stolen. Even local militia members Curt and Curtis Hill are victims. That is, until Agnes Barton and Eleanor Mason are on the case, launching an investigation even after the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) comes to town, taking an interest in the recent thefts. Agnes’s own son, Stuart, who works for the FBI, tells her to back off, but Agnes isn’t about to stand down. It’s not something she does, even after a threat of arrest. Life for Agnes and Eleanor is good, they’re planning their weddings to their respective fiancés, Andrew and Mr. Wilson, who still refuses to tell anyone his first name. With their hearts set on having their wedding at the lighthouse at the point, Agnes yet again is up to her elbows with ghost sightings, but that’s something that she’s grown accustomed to since her paranormal gift appeared. As Agnes tries to figure out who the female ghost at the lighthouse is, she finally acquaints herself with the ghosts that live in the attic of the Butler Mansion. The deeper she gets, the more she learns about not only who they are, but the dark history of the Tawas area. It gets down to the wire. Will Agnes be able to figure out who is stealing guns in the area, stop the ghosts from causing havoc at the mansion, and actually make their wedding plans before they land in jail or worse?

This book is a groundbreaking attempt to rethink the landscapes of the social world and historical practice by theorising ‘social haunting’: the ways in which the social forms, figures, phantasms and ghosts of the past become present to us time and time again. Examining the relationship between historical practices such as archaeology and archival work in order to think about how the social landscape is reinvented with reference to the ghosts of the past, the author explores the literary and historical status and accounts of the ghost, not for what they might tell us about these figures, but for their significance for our, constantly re-invented, re-vivified, re-ghosted social world. With chapters on haunted houses and castles, slave ghosts, the haunting airs of music, the prehistoric origin of spirits, Marxist spectres, Freudian revenants, and the ghosts in the machine, Ghosts, Landscapes and Social Memory adopts multi-disciplinary methods for understanding the past, the dead and social ghosts and the landscapes they appear in. A sociology of haunting that illustrates how social landscapes have their genesis and perpetuation in haunting and the past, this volume will appeal to sociologists and social theorists with interests in memory, haunting and culture.

DIV Happy Valley was the name given to the Wanjohi Valley in the Kenya Highlands, where a small community of affluent, hedonistic white expatriates settled between the wars. While Kenya's early colonial days have been immortalised by farming pioneers like Lord Delamere and Karen Blixen, and the pioneering aviator Beryl Markham, Happy Valley became infamous under the influence of troubled socialite, Lady Idina Sackville, whose life was told in Frances Osborne's bestselling The Bolter. The era culminated with the notorious murder of the Earl of Erroll in 1941, the investigation of which laid bare the Happy Valley set's decadence and irresponsibility, chronicled in another bestseller, James Fox's White Mischief. But what is left now? In a remarkable and indefatigable archaeological quest Juliet Barnes, who has lived in Kenya all her life and whose grandparents knew some of the Happy Valley characters, has set out to explore Happy Valley to find the former homes and haunts of this extraordinary and transient set of people. With the help of a remarkable African guide and further assisted by the memories of elderly former settlers, she finds the remains of grand residences tucked away beneath the mountains and speaks to local elders who share first-hand memories of these bygone times. Nowadays these old homes, she discovers, have become tumbledown dwellings for many African families, school buildings, or their ruins have almost disappeared without trace - a revelation of the state of modern Africa that makes the gilded era of the Happy Valley set even more fantastic. A book to set alongside such singular evocations of Africa’s strange colonial history as The Africa House, The Ghosts of Happy Valley is a mesmerising blend of travel narrative, social history and personal quest. /div

In the 1880s, as the European powers were carving up Africa, King Leopold II of Belgium seized for himself the vast and mostly unexplored territory surrounding the Congo River. Carrying out a genocidal plundering of the Congo, he looted its rubber, brutalized its people, and ultimately slashed its population by ten million—all the while shrewdly cultivating his reputation as a great humanitarian. Heroic efforts to expose these crimes eventually led to the first great human rights movement of the twentieth century, in which everyone from Mark Twain to the Archbishop of Canterbury participated. King Leopold's Ghost is the haunting account of a megalomaniac of monstrous proportions, a man as cunning, charming, and cruel as any of the great Shakespearean villains. It is also the deeply moving portrait of those who fought Leopold: a brave handful of missionaries, travelers, and young idealists who went to Africa for work or adventure and unexpectedly found themselves witnesses to a holocaust. Adam Hochschild brings this largely untold story alive with the wit and skill of a Barbara Tuchman. Like her, he knows that history often provides a far richer cast of characters than any novelist could invent. Chief among them is Edmund Morel, a young British shipping agent who went on to lead the international crusade against Leopold. Another hero of this tale, the Irish patriot Roger Casement, ended his life on a London gallows. Two courageous black Americans, George Washington Williams and William Sheppard, risked much to bring evidence of the Congo atrocities to the outside world. Sailing into the middle of the story was a young Congo River steamboat officer named Joseph Conrad. And looming above them all, the duplicitous billionaire King Leopold II. With great power and compassion, King Leopold's Ghost will brand the tragedy of the Congo—too long forgotten—onto the conscience of the West.
