Der Sommer auf Elvesden Manor wird ein Albtraum, da ist sich Tanya sicher. Niemand will sie dort haben, nicht ihre Großmutter und nicht die Elfen, die zu Tausenden die Wälder um das alte Herrenhaus bevölkern. Während sie versucht, ihrer Großmutter aus dem Weg zu gehen, stößt sie auf ein Geheimnis: Vor fünfzig Jahren ist ein Mädchen spurlos im Wald von Elvesden verschwunden. Tanya ahnt, dass sie die Einzige ist, die das Rätsel lösen kann. Denn die Elfen scheinen darin eine unheimliche Rolle zu spielen.
"Hinter dem Augenblick" ist der erste Band der Elfenseele-Trilogie.
Real fairies don't like to be talked about, and they cast spells if Tanya steps out of line. The most she's ever received in exchange for one of her teeth is a chewed up toffee. Of course, it would help if Tanya knew someone - anyone - else who could see them, too . . .
When Tanya meets Ratty, she finds not only that can he see fairies, but that he has a fairy friend, Turpin. Turpin is rude and spiteful, but funny and loyal too. When Ratty goes missing, Tanya discovers her new friend has another extraordinary ability; an ability that has the potential to destroy them both . . .
Seventeen-year-old Elliott hasn't slept properly for six months. Ever since the accident that nearly killed him, a shadowy figure has made its presence felt - a figure only he can see. Elliott is convinced his near-death experience has enabled him to contact the dead. But are his ghostly visions real, or the effects of a damaged mind?
When Elliott gets a job at a supposedly haunted museum it seems like the perfect chance to discover what's really going on. But his arrival doesn't just cause a stir amongst the living. Unwittingly, Elliott uncovers the museum's terrible secret ... and a spirit hell-bent on using him for revenge.
The brilliant, spine-tingling YA novel by award-winning author M. Harrison.
