From Goodreads: “The final book in the award-winning Spirits series.
Sequel to High Spirits – Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Award winner 2018.
Rob Keeley is back with the fifth and final instalment in his award-winning Spirits series. The series allows young people to learn more about other times, as well as the time in which they live.
“Nazis alone were dangerous enough, but Nazis with the powers of ghosts… of evil spirits…”
Britain. The present day. The world we know. Ruled by the Nazis.
Victorian England. Edward Fitzberranger is soon to become ill and die. But could there be another way?
The Middle Ages. Sir Francis Fitzberranger is about to marry… but finds himself shifted in time.
The barrier into the spirit world is finally breaking down and no one in the mortal world is safe. History must be set back on course and prophecies fulfilled. The Grand Defender is needed.
As Ellie works with an underground resistance movement and with the spirit world too, she is about to discover her true destiny…”
Wow this final book in the ‘Spirits’ series started off with a bang and didn’t let up! I felt just as confused as Ellie did at times. Was it all really happening or was it just a trick by the spirits? Were the Nazis really in charge? Who or what is the Warlock and why don’t her family know who she is? And last of all will the Grand Defender finally make an appearance?
Poor Ellie once again finds herself in a dire situation and is still very reluctant to get involved. She’s tired, frightened, hungry and alone, until she is rescued by Kayla who gives her shelter for the night.
I had so many questions as I read on and wondered if the author was going to be able to answer them all within the 144 pages! I didn’t need to worry though, as the story twisted and turned towards it’s surprising ending!
I’ve loved reading this series, and was quite sad when I got to the final page and had to say farewell to Ellie and her ghostly friends.
Thanks so much to the author for my lovely paperback copy.
