What starts as a community’s environmental campaign to protect an ancient woodland, becomes one boy’s desperate fight to save his horse, his home and the land he loves.
Aidan must go on a dangerous and supernatural search for the tomb of a Celtic warrior lost for two millennia; the final resting place of the legendary Queen Boudicca herself.

‘Their bodies flickered strangely – transparent, blueish, as if they were made of flames. With a jolt, he realised that they were fading. Time was running out.’
Who are the phantom girls? What do they want with Aidan?
Aidan’s village is under siege. A fracking company has moved on to the land.
Once drilling is complete, the paddocks looked after by Aidan’s family will be gone, along with his home and the horse he loves.
Aidan and his best friends Emmi and Jon have one last hope. Legend has it that the Warrior Queen Boudicca is buried close by. If only they can find the tomb that has alluded archeologists for all these centuries. If only they can prove this is the site of Boudicca’s last great battle against Roman invaders.
As the mists of time separating ancient history from present day swirl and fade, Aidan must face an unexpected and deadly enemy. And he must fight to uncover the truth of the ghostly sisters, before the mists close in for good.
