Shade (Oracle of Senders, book 1)

Fourteen-year-old Callum Silver sees dead people. It’s not a gift. His family thinks he’s crazy. Sometimes he thinks he’s crazy. He has no friends. He’s forced to live his life surrounded by nothing but the searing pain, sickening smells and desperate moans that accompany the murdered ghosts who seek him out.

When he’s offered a place at Camp Wanagi, the ten weeks in the French countryside isn’t a vacation, it’s a lifeline. A way to meet others like himself and prove his ability can offer more than years of loneliness and expensive therapy bills. Run by a mysterious group known as the Oracle of Senders, Camp Wanagi brings together teens from around the globe who all possess the unique ability to see the dead.

While Cal is relieved to find others like him, he learns quickly that not everybody experiences the spirits as he does. Some of the campers revere their abilities and don’t understand his hesitation, while others—like quiet bookworm Meander Rhoades—have good reason for wishing they could get rid of their gifts.

While researching their final project, Cal and Meander find an unmarked grave which reveals aspects of their abilities neither knew existed, forcing Cal to decide if the torture of seeing ghosts is worthwhile and, more importantly, if being a part of the Oracle of Senders is necessary, dangerous . . .

Or both.

Revenant (Oracle of Senders, book 2)

Callum Silver returns to Camp Wanagi, the summer camp run by the mysterious group known as the Oracle of Senders. A camp for people with gifts like his. Cal had hoped last summer would change his life. Instead, it almost ended it. Other than that, nothing’s changed. He still sees dead people. It still sucks.

Well, one thing has changed, the surprising friendship he’s developed with quiet bookworm, Meander Rhoades. When they parted ways last year, Cal would have hesitated to call Meander a friend. Now, they talk every day. Cal is eager to spend the summer together on the beach, even if it means battling displaced ghosts.

Reunited with his fellow Shade members, Cal soon finds that the angry souls he experienced last year were nothing compared to the ones lurking in this island paradise. His teammates don’t share his trepidation. They are eager to try out the skills they acquired at Camp Wanagi and prove themselves worthy of one day becoming a Sender, even if it means risking their lives.

With each passing day, the stakes grow higher as Shade member’s attempt to battle spirits far beyond their capabilities and Cal wrestles with the knowledge his feelings for Meander go beyond friendship. Can he survive the summer and keep his relationships intact?
