Blackwood by Gwenda Bond
Miranda's father is murdered, and both Phillips and Miranda are suspected in his death. But they know that someone else on the island is responsible, the same someone who is trying to bring back the original colonists of Roanoke Island. Somehow they must find a way to stop him before his dark alchemy affects them all.
This was a fun read. Bond's theory of what happened to the first colonists is original and well-researched, with just the right touch of the supernatural and unearthly. And her two main characters are both engaging and memorable. I liked this book a lot and look forward to reading her next one.
