A group of young friends find a body on the beach after a storm. A body that turns out to be alive, a person who will cause all kinds of trouble for their community… Meanwhile, an unusual Christmas present is causing chaos in another household, and two teenage ghosts find each other in death. At the same time a young girl seeks revenge for what happened to her parents – taken by the “White Shadows” – and an initiation dare turns into a brutal history lesson. And as a whole seaside village is taken over by the “shells”, one boy discovers his grandfather’s connection to a very special piece of furniture…

These are the YA tales from the imagination of award-winning and bestselling author P.B. Kane (Before, Arcana, Sherlock Holmes and the Servants of Hell – as Paul Kane).

Including the original introduction to The Rainbow Man by New York Times bestseller Rachel Caine (The Morganville Vampire series), the prequel short “The Rainbow Coat” and a brand new cover from Ben Baldwin, this is a unique collection not to be missed by young readers or just the young at heart.

About the author

Noel Osualdini was born in 1960, the son of an immigrant Italian quarry worker and his Australian wife. At age 5 he was hastily christened Catholic and received the Last Rites, following a near-fatal car accident in which he was run over by the son of the local Presbyterian Minister. He moved with his family a few years later to semi-rural Hampton Park and became a farm boy with ambitions of becoming a journalist. Although he wrote his first published newspaper articles at the age of 15 for a local newspaper, he never succeeded in that ambition. He has worked in technical roles in commercial and community-based television, has been a public servant, call centre operator, graphic designer and garage attendant.
