The Soul Cutter is hunting again.
Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.
In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan’s only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.
When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.
Élan is fighting for her very soul.
A brilliant flash of light transcends through time.
Another freezes a cloaked figure within a frame of salty mist as waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon to a pinprick.
By the next blaze, she is gone. Only the lighthouse remains.
Hannah’s eyes blink in step with each heartbeat. Images of her deceased parents and Martha’s Vineyard explode like firecrackers inside her mind.
She shakes her head.
For weeks this eerie woman dressed in nineteenth century garb has been haunting my webcam, but tonight she stared into my soul.
Who is she? …
Casting aside months of research on historic lighthouses, Hannah drives to the coast and boards a ferry.
What is the strange connection she has to this mysterious woman suspended in time?
Hannah finds out.
But, it’s not at all what she expects …
Hannah unravels a century old murder.

Wow! Now I want to go as well.
Can I PLEASE jump in your suitcase when you go? Those waterfalls are magnificent!
A Grecian island… what a great choice! If I hadn’t wanted to go there before, after seeing your photos, I’d want go now. Absolutely gorgeous!
Those pictures are so stunning, it looks like someone painted them from their imagination. Wow! The Greek isles have everything – beautiful scenery and impressive archeological sites. Great choice, Sam! Thanks for joining the blog hop. 🙂
It’s all Greek to me. The islands of Greece have such an allure. My son went to Crete, recently. That’s pretty close to Greece.
And now, all Rhodes lead me back out of here…..
I had never heard of this island before I came here today. It is stunning. Especially that center photo. wow.
I had never heard of this island either. Amazing!! I’m like Magaly, I want to hop in your suitcase when you go. The photos look almost too gorgeous to be real! It’s like a magical island.
Thanks so much for taking part in our Hop!
Those pictures are beautiful and I love ancient mythology. A perfect choice.
Those photos are absolutely gorgeous! My family had the opportunity to move to Greece when I was a kid, but for various reasons we ended up not doing so. It makes me question my and my husband’s decision to not take out-of-country positions he’s been offered, but we also like to be close to my big family.
Those pictures are beautiful. One other participant mentioned Samothrace and it’s my first time hearing of this island.
Hey, we can take the trip together. 🙂
Perfect choice for you given where your imagination takes you. I’ve never been but it’s certainly on the short list of places I’d LOVE to go!
Gorgeous! Almost made it to the Greek Islands when I was living over in London, but had to work, and sadly, the opportunity didn’t arise again. They look like paradise on earth. 🙂
second greece dream destination ive seen… and i don’t blame u! so much history and culture and architecture 🙂
That Destination looks quite magical! I may have to reconsider my choice of places to visit.
Beautiful. I’ve been to Malta a couple of times, but that’s as close as I’ve come to the Greek islands.
That’s an appropriate destination, since many of your stories are taken from Greek myth. 🙂 The Greek Isles are gorgeous. A neighbor of mine went and the pictures were stunning.
Amazing pictures. I would love to visit too.
