Rain of the Ghosts is the first in Greg Weisman's series about an adventurous young girl, Rain Cacique, who discovers she has a mystery to solve, a mission to complete and, oh, yes, the ability to see ghosts.
Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them: the Ghost Keys), a beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. Rain Cacique is water-skiing with her two best friends Charlie and Miranda when Rain sees her father waiting for her at the dock. Sebastian Bohique, her maternal grandfather, has passed away. He was the only person who ever made Rain feel special. The only one who believed she could do something important with her life. The only thing she has left to remember him by is the armband he used to wear: two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other's tails in their mouths. Only the armband . . . and the gift it brings: Rain can see dead people. Starting with the Dark Man: a ghost determined to reveal the Ghost Keys' hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure.

Rain, who lives on an island close to the Bermuda Triangle, has special abilities—she just doesn’t know it until her dying grandfather bequeaths her a bracelet designed with entwined snakes. Suddenly the spirit world opens up to the eighth-grader, and her grandfather’s ghost, who appears to Rain as the young WWII fighter pilot he once was, leads her on a mission to resurrect the remains of his old plane and free the spirits of his crew, all of whom died in the crash. Meanwhile, a creepy man is seeking the bracelet, which seems to be connected to other talismans Rain and her sidekick, Charlie, will likely pursue in subsequent volumes. Action and the tropical setting will entice readers to this supernatural opener, though the omniscient narrator —revealed to be a seemingly immortal dog(!)—can at times be confusing, especially when he slips into first-person asides. Hopefully, the dog’s connection to Rain will be illuminated in the next book of what promises to be an interesting series. Grades 5-8. --Karen Cruze
