In the Prospero Keys, or Ghost Keys, Rain Cacique inherits a strange armband that gives her the ability to see ghosts, including that of her grandfather who is determined to show her how special she is by revealing the Ghost Keys' hidden world.

Rain of the Ghosts is the first in Greg Weisman's series about an adventurous young girl, Rain Cacique, who discovers she has a mystery to solve, a mission to complete and, oh, yes, the ability to see ghosts.

Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them: the Ghost Keys), a beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. Rain Cacique is water-skiing with her two best friends Charlie and Miranda when Rain sees her father waiting for her at the dock. Sebastian Bohique, her maternal grandfather, has passed away. He was the only person who ever made Rain feel special. The only one who believed she could do something important with her life. The only thing she has left to remember him by is the armband he used to wear: two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other's tails in their mouths. Only the armband . . . and the gift it brings: Rain can see dead people. Starting with the Dark Man: a ghost determined to reveal the Ghost Keys' hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure.

Seeing the recently de...

Seeing the recently departed is not always a joyous occasion, even when you live on an Island named after the dead. Those that have passed on are meant to move on to another plane of existence, where they can choose another life path to follow. They are not meant to linger, but instead move up to embrace the next level of life. This book is about a girl named Rain that lives on an Island called Prospero Keys or Ghost Keys by the locals. It is here that an undiscovered World War II tragedy occurred. Rain is a young teenage girl that is very close to her grandfather, who is a WWII veteran. During the summer her grandfather dies suddenly. Before his death he gives her a bracelet that has been handed down in the family for many generations. Once worn Rain begins to see the ghosts of WWII soldiers. How is it that these soldiers are coming to haunt Rain and why are they asking her for help? How is it that the bracelet that her grandfather gave her is magical? What is the secret that her grandfather has kept for over 40 years? This book was an interesting read. My grandfather was also in WWII so I could relate to the story. I enjoyed the plot of the story and how the author gave a little history with his book. It is not every day that an author has young adult female character in a B-17 bomber. I thought that was a hoot! The whole book was very new and refreshing for me. I honestly can say that I have never read another book like this one in the young adult section. I strongly recommend this for all readers. I don't see why it has to be limited to just young adults. I honestly think anyone can enjoy a book like this. Great job author.

Thirteen-year-old Rain...

Thirteen-year-old Rain Cacique lives on an island in the Prospero Keys or, as the locals call them, the Ghost Keys. When she's not helping out at her family's inn, she spends much of her time biking around the island with her best friend Charlie trying to avoid tourists. When her beloved grandfather, Sebastian Bohique dies, he leaves her an armband. When she puts it on, she can see ghosts, most specifically, eight men in WWII bomber jackets, who tell her that they want to go home. Soon, she and Charlie find themselves caught up in an exciting adventure concerning a dangerous thief, a decades old plane crash, a violent deity, and a mysterious cave. Rain of the Ghosts is the first in a new paranormal series aimed at middle-graders. It's told by a dog (I think) named Opie who, with his seemingly harmless old master (?), may be much more than he appears. The story begins rather slowly and much of the book seems to be a setup for future stories. Still, once the tale picked up, it was a lot of fun. Nice start to what looks to be an interesting series for readers ten and up.
