A young man plagued by the ability to see ghosts races to save the mythological land of Tara from a terrible fate in Erika Lewis's stunning fantasy debut, Game of Shadows
Ethan Makkai struggles with an overprotective mother who never lets him out of her sight, and a terrifying secret: he can see ghosts. When his mother is kidnapped to the uncharted continent of Tara, he sets out to save her; a journey that leads him to the hidden lands, and straight into the arms of a vicious sorcerer who will stop at nothing until he controls Tara. It’s an arduous road, but Ethan doesn't travel it alone; a cousin he never knew he had and a sword-slinging healer who'd rather fight than mend bones both insist on helping him. Together, they dodge imprisonment, battle beasts Ethan thought only existed in nightmares, and accept help from the beings he’s always sought to avoid: ghosts.
This L.A. teen must garner strength from his gift and embrace his destiny if he’s going to save his mother, the fearless girl he’s fallen for, and all the people of Tara.
