When sixteen year old Arella Cline’s summer vacation begins with the tragic death of her parents, she is sent to live with her aunt to begin a new life on a remote island off the western coast of Ireland. But there are strange things happening on Tory Island—shadow figures, mysterious auras, and the haunting sound of her deceased parents’ voices.
The only thing Arella finds appealing about Tory is the handsome, dark-haired Declan McQuilan. But Cannon Fidelous, a mysterious outcast, warns her that the island and its inhabitants are hiding a dark secret. And when Arella finds an ancient book of prophecies, she discovers the island’s curse—a curse that only she can undo.
