Poltergeeks by Sean Cummings

15-year-old Julie Richardson is about to learn that being the daughter of a witch isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When she and her best friend, Marcus, witness an elderly lady jettisoned out the front door of her home, it’s pretty obvious to Julie there’s a supernatural connection.

In fact, there’s a whisper of menace behind increasing levels of poltergeist activity all over town. After a large-scale paranormal assault on Julie’s high school, her mother falls victim to the spell Endless Night. Now it’s a race against time to find out who is responsible or Julie won’t just lose her mother’s soul, she’ll lose her mother’s life.

Praise and Reviews:

Poltergeeks is Ghostbusters meets Sabrina the Teenage Witch with a dash of X-Files. A magical spell with equal parts humour, adventure and surprise.”
Sara Grant, author of Dark Parties

“Julie is one kick-ass young woman and I think a lot of young women will thoroughly enjoy cheering her on. The story gripped me from the first page and provided a dark but thrilling romp through a wonderfully constructed magical world. Poltergeeks is true edge-of-your-seat entertainment and I am really hoping there will be a sequel!”
Linda Poitevin, author of the Grigori Legacy series

Poltergeeks rattles along at a fair old clip, shooting out thrills and spills and quite a few good jokes along the way. All this is carried off with an enviably light touch that makes Sean Cummings not just a good YA writer, but a good writer whatever genre he chooses to work in.”
- Gary McMahon, author of the Thomas Usher series

Poltergeeks is action and magic brewed into a fast-paced, death-defying spell of a read. Best friends Julie and Marcus make for a fantastic team with great chemistry and quick humor to balance out the dark peril in this high-stakes, do-or-die tale of witchcraft and suspense.”
Erin Kellison, author of the Shadow series

“Poltergeeks is absolutely everything you could possibly want in YA fantasy.”
– Cara Fielder, Starburst Magazine

“Canadian author Cummings’ first for teens features some fizzy magic and an interesting supernatural world”
Kirkus Reviews

“Sean Cummings has written a fast-paced, action-filled novel in Poltergeeks and has set it up beautifully for a sequel.”
– Merikay Noah, Popcorn Reads

“This book can be summed up in three words: Fun, great, fan-frikkin-tastic. When’s the sequel out again?”
– Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
