The Dead Set
Tracy Eire, author
Photography is Sixtine Soto’s life. The ray of sunshine that guides her through lean times, unforgiving part time jobs, and the hardships of being ‘the poor kid’ in her high school. Her specialty? Photos of abandoned places. There's something uplifting in the crumbling beauty of locations once-frequented by the living. Her online résumé is full of photos that have 'that special something' that attracts viewers, and takes their breath away. Ghosts. And even if she can't see them in her own work, infamous, mysterious ghost hunter, Rowan Hellebrand, can. Invited into the shadowy world of one of the best-funded, most covert ghost hunting teams in operation, and tested by a hunting prodigy, Six soon finds the business of hunting ghosts is more cut-throat than the plethora of popular television shows -- whose cameras Hellebrand avoids -- would lead viewers to believe. A frantic phone call is puts Sixtine on her first case as Hellebrand Survey's one-and-only spirit photographer. Surrounded by Rowan's crack team of paranormal ghost hunters -- witch Dane, lithomancer Raye, divinely inspired exorcist Elias, hacker and healer Keir, and once child star, psychic Evey-Claire -- Sixtine takes on an Armory haunted by a deadly spirit already responsible for sending a young medium to hospital. She soon finds her way into a secret room, lost to time, triggers the ire of the spirit, and joins Hellebrand's team in an epic battle to save the Armory's owner and his entire family.
