Shiver the Whole Night Through is a Young Adult novel about a bullied youngster who gets drawn into a dream-world of magic, desire, hope and revenge. He’s not sure if beautiful Sláine is a ghost, a demon or the figment of his imagination – but someone seems to be taking care of the bullies…
A teen mystery, mixed with romance, fantasy and horror, this book blends elements of Twilight, Twin Peaks, Let the Right One In, teen-detective movie Brick, and classic Gothic revenge stories.
The story is:
After months of bullying and romantic heartbreak, seventeen-year-old Aidan Flood feels just about ready to end it all. But when he wakes up one morning to find that local beauty and town sweetheart Sláine McAuley actually has, he discovers a new sense of purpose, and becomes determined to find out what happened to her.
The town is happy to put it down to suicide, but then one night Aidan gets a message, scratched in ice on his bedroom window: ‘I didn’t kill myself.’ Who is contacting him? And if Sláine didn’t end her own life… who did?
