Eleanor, St Helen and St Katharine

A Skinful of Shadows

“Sometimes, when a person dies, their spirit goes looking for somewhere to hide. Some people have space within them, perfect for hiding.”
A girl called Makepeace learned to defend herself from wandering spirits at nights in the graveyard but one day when disastrous events occur it causes her to drop her guard. There is a spirit in Makepeace and she has no control over its wild and aggressive behaviour. Her only way to safety is when she is sent off to live with her fathers relatives who do not possess any pity. She plans to escape to a country which is torn apart by a dreadful civil war. Is it Makepeace making the decisions or is it the spirit? She has a very important decision to make possession or death………..

I didn’t find this book as interesting as I would have hoped. Although the storyline is quite interesting, it wasn’t as captivating and enthralling as the other books. I would rate this book a four out of ten because I didn’t really find it ‘a page turner’ despite the unusual and seemingly interesting story line. I think the age range for this book is ten to thirteen because it is a dark subject matter, ghosts but twisted to be more mature. The book is cleverly written, there are seven parts to each of the seven chapters.
