The person in front of Paul was a hideous mixture of girl and doll: half flesh, half cloth, and the eyes and face had nothing of Julia left at all, only the evil features of the doll.
When Julia finds the ugly doll in the strange ball of feathers on the beach, Paul instinctively knows that his sister has meddled with something that is going to cause trouble. But already it’s too late – the power behind the doll has his sister in its thrall and, later that night, the Ragwitch claims Julia for its own.
Fighting against his natural urge to run from this hideous being, Paul is drawn into the creature’s own world. Can he save his sister – or even himself?
