Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels, Young Justice, Gargoyles) adapts his YA paranormal novel RAIN OF THE GHOSTS into a full-cast AudioPlay.
Great news for those who are fans of the work of Greg Weisman as well as fans of the great voice talents behind many of the series he has worked on, including Young Justice, Gargoyles, Spectactular Spider-man, and many more. There’s a kickstarter currently running to do an audio-play adaptation of Mr. Weisman’s first novel, Rain of the Ghosts. The story, as quoted on the Kickstarter page:
These are the adventures of Rain Cacique, a young girl descended from the indigenous Taíno people of the Caribbean. Rain lives on the Ghost Keys, a chain of islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle, where her parents own and run a Bed & Breakfast that is both Rain’s home and
place of employment. Over the course of the first book, Rain goes from
making beds for tourists to learning she has the ability to communicate
with ghosts. Rain has a mystery to solve, a mission to accomplish and a
destiny to fulfill. I can honestly guarantee that if you enjoy the
sensibility, characters, plotting and surprises I’ve brought to such
series as Gargoyles and Young Justice, you’ll love Rain of the Ghosts.
