Description

Winner of the 1999 Tom Fitzgibbon Award for best children's fiction by a previously unpublished writer. '"When you die, there are many afterworlds you can go to. Usually you choose where you go, although it does depend on how you live your life," he added with a knowing rise to his eyebrows. "But sometimes choice is taken away. This happened to Tom. He was stolen..."' Tori has always felt close to her great-great-Aunty Joy who died on her wedding day over sixty years ago. When Joy's ghost appears, asking her to find Joy's fiance Tom, Tori and two friends are whisked away into a fearful after-world. Friendship and loyalty are tested as the trio face many dangers in this strange world. Who is the good-looking young man who offers to be their guide? Can the three friends help Joy and Tom without falling into the clutches of Agathorea - Creator and Master of the World of The Stolen Dead?
