Summary

Twins Will and Lettie Dennis and their cousin Jonas Wingate are unwilling visitors to the old Maine homestead of their older cousin, Mary Pete Tibbets. She enlists their help in trying to prove the home is the site of a former Pilgrim trading post. Proving the mansion's historic past is the only way to save it from demolition, as the town wants to tear it down and build a new bridge in its place. 

"Stowaway adventure, smuggling, possible poisoning, and a salvaged romance are credibly presented by the author who conveys depth of characterization through conversation and the incidental inclusion of Maine's human, herbal, and wildlife. Regard for natural beauty and historic landmarks is an intrinsic value in this mystery which combines a graceful style and absorbing action." -- Kirkus Reviews

    In Revenant, the third installment in the Dark Rituals series, Colina grows in power and ability—and faces danger like never before.   After miraculously escaping the insane asylum, it becomes clear that Colina holds unprecedented power—she can force spirits into the afterlife and even raise the dead. But with those abilities come problems: just as they escape evil’s clutches, Colina and her friends are abducted by a dark mastermind with horrifying intentions.   Now Colina is being forced to raise an undead army for a madman set on unleashing the demons of hell and reverting the world back to a state of chaos. In fact, he’s already started: death dealers are dying by the hundreds, blamed for the evil acts that Colina unknowingly committed.   And the demon she raised so long ago is fighting on his side.   Torn between the romantic attentions of Luke and Dean and unable to trust her own deathly abilities, Colina has nowhere to turn. Will the darkness finally consume her soul?   Catrina Burgess’ Dark Rituals series originally appeared on Wattpad with over three million reads. Revenant is the third book of four. The first in the series, Awakening, was named Wattpad’s Best Suspense Story of 2014.
