When a glass Christmas angel smashes in front of Chris's motorbike, a stranger warns him this must be an omen. It is only when he and his girlfriend get trapped on the moors on Christmas Eve, that Chris wonders if he should have taken the warning more seriously. For soon, very strange things start to happen. Who is the mysterious driver of an old car? What are the secrets in the snow? And just who is the third angel?

Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
