It all began when Effie's rabbit Buster escaped from his hutch. It was on the night of the offering - a tradition in Mivtown to keep the monsters of the loch away from the tiny village. Effie doesn't really believe in the monsters that are supposed to lead you into the water. But shortly after Buster escapes, Effie's mum disappears, and then black slugs begin to show up everywhere.

 

Effie knows these events aren't a coincidence, and sets out to determine what has happened with her best friend Finn. But the more they learn about the strange happenings in Mivtown, they more they begin to wonder: has someone woken the monsters in the loch?

 

This is a spooky mystery set in the Highlands that is both compelling and gorgeously written.
