Fifteen year-old Cait Weerd has no idea she's being sought by the undain: sorcerous creatures that feed off the spirit of the living. She doesn't know they need her blood to survive. She doesn't even know she's a witch, descended from a long line of witches. Cait Weerd doesn't know a lot, really, but all that's about to change.
At Manchester Central Library she's caught up in sudden violence. In the chaos she's given an old book that's been hidden there. Given it and told to run. Hide the book or destroy it. The book contains all the secrets of the undains' existence. They and their human servants want to find it as much as they want to find her.
Cait learns the fates of two worlds are at stake. Just what she needs. Along with definitely-not-a-boyfriend Danny, she has to decide what the hell to do. Run, fight or hope it all goes away.
It's only then she learns who she really is, along with the terrible truth of what the undain have been doing in our world all this time...

A to Z has come to an end. Anyone who took part must be blogged out by now. I know I am, and I didn't do anywhere near as much visiting on behave of Untethered Realms as I should have.
Did you do A to Z? How did it go?
May has arrived. I plan to do as much writing as possible. I also have a weeks holiday at the end of the month, which I plan to split between writing and a trip to London. I'm seeing the first rebooted Star Trek film at the Royal Albert Hall, with a live performance of the soundtrack. I'm really looking forward to it.
What are your plans for May?
