Isla Rising: A Tale of Love, Death and Destiny
P.J. Johnson, author
It is 1833, and fiery Edinburgh widow Isla is dying. Ready to meet her maker and eager to reunite with the love of her life, she is not afraid of passing, but Isla's death is only the beginning of a series of otherworldly adventures that she must undertake on her quest to find her husband. As a spirit, Isla must deal with grave-robbers, ancient mysteries and earth bound ghosts in order to protect her granddaughter and locate her love. Culminating in the glowing bonfires of a lawless and blistering Samain, when the bold dead walk among the living, Isla Rising ranges from the arcane to the humorous, as the wild widow stalks through the shadowy depths of Edinburgh's homes and cemeteries, pubs and plots.
Reviews
WA Newspapers

-PJ Johnson’s hugely enjoyable debut novel Isla Rising not only (re)animates the living and the dead alike with her vivid prose; she resurrects a 19th-century Edinburgh, with all its darkness, dangers, and superstitions, such that you’re drawn inexorably into this romantic adventure of love beyond the grave without ever once doubting its veracity. One of the heroes is even a cat! What’s not to like?
