More about the book

In the charming Welsh market town of Pont Nefoedd, super empath Lilly is almost relieved to be living her last human life. With only her spirit guide Jack for company, and the world collapsing around them, she longs for the peace of the Eternal Forest.

When by chance, Lilly meets Storm, a widowed ex-witch who has lost her magic, both women discover that sometimes life can turn on a sixpence.

As Lilly falls in love with life, Storm joins her old friend, retired vicar Henri, on a desperate quest to find the one being on Earth capable of stopping the apocalypse.

Only the First Ethereal can decide whether there is enough good left in humanity to save us, but will the friends find it in time?

Also hunting the Ethereal, but with murderous intent, is a group determined to hang on to their wealth and power and ride out the apocalypse in luxury.

The race is on – and the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
