It was only a few years ago, God shed his light on me. Anointed me with the gift of writing poetry. He opened my eyes to understand from the scripture that I read. A powerful message came down from above and descended here on me. The grace of God bestowed on me, the special gift that was given. Burns in my soul, lets the words flow on this paper…
On a frozen winter morning Nat and her friends are invited to Ruapuke Beach to see The Ship of Sight, a legendary Viking ship that emerges every hundred years. With the Ship of Sight comes The Hand of Shadow - a task that must be completed within two phases of the moon in exchange for otherworldly gifts.
As the sun climbs into the gloomy sky, Barnaby climbs onto a sacred sand dune and uncovers a grave. One of the skeletons reaches out and puts a talisman in Nat's hand. It's her job to take it up the spirits' path and return it to its rightful place. Guided by Abraham, Nat and her friends race up New Zealand toward Cape Reinga in order to complete their mission.
But Drake, the villain Nat outwitted last holidays, has been waiting for The Ship of Sight to appear. Incensed at losing Sinbad's ancient treasure to Nat and her friends, Drake believes The Hand of Shadow is hers.
Nat has two weeks to get the talisman to Cape Reinga, or she's dead. And Drake will do anything to stop Nat completing her task.
