- The clan is under attack after Jack makes a silly mistake and unleashes the wrath of a malevolent spirit. Stakes are high as Jack attempts to save his fellow warriors and continue his quest to find the missing gems from the magical amulet, by racing to ancient China. There, he faces a shadowy banshee who tries every trick in the book to stop Jack - and prevent him from realising that sometimes, what you need most is right under your nose.
R. E. Devine writes fiction and non-fiction for adults and children alike.
