*Goosebumps meets Famous Five in this spooky adventure series for older children and all lovers of ghost stories.*

Joe and Eddie are intrigued by the bubbling mud pools and boiling geysers that dot the landscape around the lake where they're staying. They meet local geologist Rocky, who tells them about the cataclysmic 1886 eruption of Mt Tarawera – the volcano that casts a long shadow over their holiday cottage.

But Joe’s fascination turns to unease when ghostly sightings on the lake and dark rumblings from the Earth hint that the volcano is reawakening. Can he persuade Rocky, who puts his faith only in science, to sound a warning? 

Read it at night, if you dare ...

Review:

"... When Joe begins to see ghosts, the action becomes intense and the pages turn quickly. Copsey skilfully gives readers a history and geography lesson while presenting an engaging tale." - New Zealand Herald, "Best Books for Christmas 2015"*"The characters are well-drawn, and their realistic interactions give depth to the exciting, fast-paced narrative. The ghosts, while not of the frightening variety, add a certain frisson to the story, as well as being grounded in a fascinating and dramatic period of New Zealand history ..." - Magpies Magazine*"An action-packed adventure with a good dose of spookiness. Much like the pressure building inside a volcano, the suspense builds until it reaches its explosive conclusion ..." Zac, Christchurch Libraries Children's and YA Outreach Librarian, on bestfriendsarebooks.com*"Sue Copsey creates engaging believable characters with authentic voices. The story whips along and is filled with humour, fascinating science and great spooky adventure ..."Rachael Craw, award-winning YA author of Spark trilogy
