Rise To Me, the second instalment in the popular PSYCHIC SURVEYS series.
“This isn’t a ghost we’re dealing with. If only it were that simple…”
Eighteen years ago, when psychic Ruby Davis was a child, her mother – also a psychic – suffered a nervous breakdown. Ruby was never told why. “It won’t help you to know,” the only answer ever given. Fast forward to the present and Ruby is earning a living from her gift, running a high street consultancy – Psychic Surveys – specialising in domestic spiritual clearance.
Boasting a strong track record, business is booming. Dealing with spirits has become routine but there is more to the paranormal than even Ruby can imagine. Someone – something – stalks her, terrifying but also strangely familiar. Hiding in the shadows, it is fast becoming bolder and the only way to fight it is for the past to be revealed – no matter what the danger.

And sometimes the darkness can see you.

But little does the Reverend, and the other guardians of Larus, know that none of them will have such far-reaching consequences as a fourth and very mysterious message that appears inscribed upon the very rock of the Isle – if only somebody can discover what it means. What is the secret of the Knotted Cord? Not to worry, the Reverend is on the case…
