As far as apartments go, roommates Stella and Charlotte “Bronte” believe theirs to be just fine. Sure, they hate taking the stairs up to the third floor, especially after grocery shopping. And yes, the apartment staff could be a bit nicer. But all things considered, it’s not a bad place to live.
Until the sudden chills begin, seizing them at inexplicable times. Until Bronte starts to see shadows out of the corner of her eye and Stella begins to hear voices too close, sighs too near to be the culprit of paper-thin walls.
Century-old ghosts Oliver and Cyril have seen what happens to mortals forced, unknowingly, to spend time in their company. For the unlucky few, their perceptions change, allowing them to perceive the departed. And not everyone, they know, are strong enough to handle living with the dead. Determined to save Stella and Bronte from the fate that befell their last haunting, Oliver and Cyril must find a way to prevent their perceptions from deepening.
But when the two ghosts encounter a dark creature unlike any they’ve seen before, they might have to rethink their plan. The two girls might be the key to saving their afterlives. Not to mention themselves.
