15-year-old Julie Richardson is about to learn that being the daughter of a witch isn't all it's cracked up to be. When she and her best friend, Marcus, witness an elderly lady jettisoned out the front door of her home, it's pretty obvious to Julie there's a supernatural connection. In fact, there's a whisper of menace behind increasing levels of poltergeist activity all over town. After a large-scale paranormal assault on Julie's high school, her mother falls victim to the spell Endless Night. Now it's a race against time to find out who is responsible or Julie won't just lose her mother's soul, she'll lose her mother's life.

About Sean Cummings

Sean Cummings is a comic book geek, superhero junkie, zombie fan and a total nerd. (He's also a gold mine of completely useless information about films made prior to 1960. Don't get him started on "Arsenic and Old Lace" because he won't shut up about it. ) He's been writing since 1978 (as a means of liberating his "inner nerd"). His interests include science fiction, the borg, cats with extra toes, east Indian cuisine and quality sci-fi movies/television. When he's not collecting comic books or attending the latest science fiction convention, he can be found in his home office, writing away like a man possessed.

Our customer reviews

The story moves along very quickly and features a ton of action in it. While it does center around a female character, I think boys will enjoy this read as well. I liked the quick pace and the magic that Julie possesses. The problems I had with it were how annoying Julie was in the beginning of the book. Maybe it's because she's a teenager (aren't we/weren't we all annoying as teens?), but she rubbed me the wrong way in how she treated other people and in the way she spoke/thought of herself. Towards the end it was more under control and I didn't mind the way she was - but she got stronger and realized some things about herself along the way. The mystery in the story wasn't all that mysterious, but it wasn't glaringly obvious about it either. I just wanted more substance to that area. Julie's best friend Marcus is wonderful to read about. He's smart and geeky and always there for Julie. Now that Julie's more grown up than when we started the story - I'd love to read more about her finding her magical way!
