Not many seventeen year old girls have a best friend who’s a ghost, but then Mary Hades isn’t your average teenager.

Scarred physically and mentally from a fire, her parents decide a holiday to an idyllic village in North Yorkshire will help her recover. Nestled in the middle of five moors, Mary expects to have a boring week stuck in a caravan with her parents. Little does she know, evil lurks in the campsite…

Seth Lockwood—a local fairground worker with a dark secret—might be the key to uncovering the murky history that has blighted Nettleby. But Mary is drawn to him in a way that has her questioning her judgement.

Helped by her dead best friend and a quirky gay Goth couple, Mary must stop the unusual deaths occurring in Nettleby. But can she prevent her heart from being broken?

The first in a series of dark YA novels, Mary Hades follows on from the bestselling Kindle Single 'My Daylight Monsters'. A spine-tingling tale with romance, readers will be shocked and entertained in equal measure.

Review: An entertaining read.
Mary and her ghost friend Lacey, head to a village in North Yorkshire to basically go camping. While there Mary meets Seth Lockwood a local who has a secret. Mary is attracted to him even though she has her reservations. With the help of a gay goth couple and a local ghost hunter, Mary, Lacey, and Seth have to solve a murder. Or let a vengeful ghost continue to kill innocent campers.
I liked Mary and Lacey they were sweet yet spunky. I thought Mary dealt with everything happening fairly well, given the circumstances. I did feel a little out of the loop when they were talking about what happen at the hospital. I felt like there was a book or prequel that I'd missed reading. Seth and Mary had good chemistry and made a cute couple. The plot was fun and full of twists, sprinkled with spine tingling scenes.
Overall this was a good read.
