Eibhlís Carcione

Children’s Writer & Poet

Welcome to Dead Town Raven McKay

Eibhlís Carcione’s debut novel is a stunning, lyrical tale of loss that’s also a gripping thriller and ghost story. When her parents disappear, 12 -year-old Raven McKay is put into foster care in the town of Grave’s Pass. But this is no ordinary town. It’s a place where the living and the dead live side by side…

“Lyrical and magical. A most original and delicious tale and the work of a poet.”

Kieran Larwood
Award-winning writer of The Five Realm Series and Carnival of The Lost Series
