’13 Days of Midnight’: prepare for a scare with Orchard Books new YA novel

Get ready for a spooky read that’ll have you turning pages late into the night, starring the YA scene’s newest hero, Luke Manchett.

Created by debut author, Leo Hunt, and taken on by Orchard Books for publishing, ’13 Days of Midnight opens just as Luke inherits a whopping $6 million – as well as 8 murderous ghosts.

Heads up: we cannot guarantee ping-pong playing ghosties.

As it turns out, some family secrets run deeper than others, and Luke’s estranged father just so happened to keep the fact that he has over half a dozen ghosts following him around pretty quiet – well, that is until his sudden death. Now, Luke has to find some way of sending these vengeful spirits into eternal rest – and before Halloween, when the boundaries between the spirit world and ours is weakest.Teaming up with school witchlet, Elza Moss, and his not-so-brave pup, Ham, Luke’s got a total of 13 days to find some solution to his ghosty problem, or risk a sudden demise himself.

Really, Luke should just call Scooby and the gang to sort it out in 30mins or less.

Leo has already been described as a “brilliant young writing talent” and “future star”, so watch. This. Space.

’13 Days of Midnight’ is set for release July 2nd 2015 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon here.
