When Araminta and her best friend Wanda go on a school trip to Skeleton Island, they don’t expect to get stranded there overnight. And they certainly don’t expect the island to be haunted by ghostly skeletons of pirates! It certainly makes for a spooky sleepover. Luckily these ghoulish pirates just want someone to help them find their lost treasure, then they’ll happily set sail on their ghost ship once more.
But someone else wants the treasure for themselves – can Araminta find what is lurking in the depths before it’s too late?

It’s been a bit crazy here. I just finished SandRider, THM book 2 and Araminta Spook number 7: Skeleton Island and then got attacked by bit of writing burn-out, I think.
Anyway, we’re getting near PathFinder now! Check this out…

I have just got to the end of writing THM book 2, which is called: SandRider.
I’ve not had space to check in for a while but will be reading all the posts and answering over the next couple of weeks – thanks for all the great comments and questions.
If anyone is near Edinburgh this weekend come and see me! I will be at the Book Festival and at 5pm on Sunday I’m going to be talking with Sally Green about writing about the supernatural. I’m really looking forward to this, I think its going to be very interesting.
And for any Araminta Spook fans I’m there on Monday too, at 10.30.
There’s going to be a fun trailer on Amazon for PathFinder soon – watch this space…
The Magykal World of TodHunter Moon
by Angie Sage
Release date: 14.10.2014
Tod has grown up a PathFinder, one of an ancient seafaring tribe. Her mother, who died when Tod was young, had a very different history. She was from a mysterious magykal desert-dwelling family. When Tod’s father disappears she is not only alone, but soon finds herself swept into the path of an evil sorcerer. Now Tod must choose which of her pasts will help her to survive: PathFinder or Magician. Magyk will allow her to fight like with like, but her PathFinder heritage gives Tod something special – the edge.
Angie Sage’s new book combines breathtaking action with fabulous plotting. The characters are instantly engaging, the tension is relentless and Angie’s superlative storytelling weaves the threads seamlessly together for an utterly satisfying read.
It’s been a busy month or two here. I’ve been really getting on with writing Book Two of TodHunter Moon, got lost in the middle of the story and almost forgot about anything else! Sometimes that happens and the weeks whiz by without me realising so apologies for not being around recently. I am also at last getting my own website re-done and that’s looking good, though not finished yet.
Oh yes, and for all you Araminta fans, I’ve now started another Arminta Spook book called Skeleton Island. If you would like to come and see me talk about Araminta I’ll be at Brighton Festival on Saturday 10th May 2pm and then Luton Hoo on Sunday at 12.15. Come and say hello!
