Thirteen Days of Midnight

author: Leo Hunt

When Luke Manchett’s estranged father dies unexpectedly, he leaves his son a dark inheritance: his Host, a collection of eight restless spirits who want revenge for their long enslavement. Halloween is fast approaching, and Luke knows his Host is planning something far more trick than treat. Armed with only his father’s indecipherable notes, a locked copy of The Book of Eight, and help from school outcast Elza Moss, Luke has just thirteen days to uncover the closely guarded secrets of black magic and to send his unquiet spirits to their eternal rest—or join their ghostly ranks himself.

“Gripping. . . . With well-drawn characters, some truly creepy ghouls, and entertaining banter, this is a self-assured debut that’s as funny as it is terrifying.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

author’s comments:
Leo Hunt wrote Thirteen Days of Midnight in his first year of college and signed with an agent the following year. When he was younger he thought he wanted to be either an archaeologist or an author; but when he learned that archaeologists didn't unearth piles of perfectly preserved dinosaur bones every time they put a spade in the ground, he decided to write books instead. He lives in northeast England.
