The Lovereading4Kids comment
In this sequel to The New Policeman, a visit to Tír na n’ Óg becomes a necessity after J J Liddy’s daughter meets a ghost guarding the beacon. There’s something frightening at hand which threatens the whole human race and JJ knows that help can only come from one place - Tír na n’ Óg. JJ needs Aengus Og and his fairy kin but will they come to the rescue? Kate Thompson’s trilogy continues to infuse real life with a delicious touch of magic in a powerful story about human survival.

The Last of the High Kings by Kate Thompson
JJ Liddy sometimes blames his unreliable temperament on the visit he made to Tir na n'Og, the land of eternal youth, when he was fifteen years old. It's perhaps not surprising that his children have also turned out to be a little eccentric, especially eleven-year-old Jenny. She forgets to go to school, can't bear to wear shoes, and spends entire days roaming the mountainside. It's up there that she meets the ghost. He is guarding a pile of rocks known as the beacon, and when some archaeologists arrive to excavate it, they run into the strangest kind of obstruction. But it is not people the ghost fears, and when the real enemy finally reveals itself, the future of the entire human race is threatened. Only Aengus Og and his fairy kin can help now.
