A chilling collection of three novellas from YA authors Lucy Christopher, Kat Ellis and Rhian Ivory.

'YA as it should be - dangerous, dark and daring. I loved it.'  CJ Skuse
A red eye blinks in the darkness; a hidden door opens to a lost crypt; a life is held in the light of a flickering flame - welcome to Three Strikes.
Step into the unknown world of The Tribe with Kasha in THE DARKNESS by Lucy Christopher; be entranced by the ghostly voices of THE TWINS OF BLACKFIN by Kat Ellis, or lose yourself in a haunting retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Match Girl' - MATCHGIRL by Rhian Ivory. Whether you like your stories dark or darker, Three Strikes is the perfect under-the-covers read!
