Lucy Darrington, the daughter of the famous ghostologist William Darrington, runs away from boarding school in order to find her missing father. She travels with her friend Pete to Devil’s Thumb, an island that is the home of the rare and magical Dreamwood. But finding William Darrington will be harder than Lucy or Pete imagine, because though it has healing properties, the Dreamwood also feeds on human flesh. With unexpected twists and turns, “Dreamwood” is a thrilling supernatural and paranormal adventure.
