Spirits of Ash and Foam (ISBN 1-250-02982-1) is the title of the second book in the Rain of the Ghosts series. It was published by St. Martin's Press, and hit the shelves on July 8, 2014.

Description

Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them: the Ghost Keys), the beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle where Rain Cacique lives. When Rain's maternal grandfather passed away, he left her his special armband: two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other’s tails in their mouths. Rain soon discovers that the armband is actually a zemi – a very powerful talisman created by the island’s native Arawak Taino Indians – and that it allows Rain to see ghosts, including her own grandfather who is determined to help her uncover the Ghost Keys’ hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure.

Now, Rain Cacique's looking for a few answers — and the second zemi, a Taino relic that allows her to see dead people. But it’s the first week of school, so she’s pretty busy juggling teachers, homework, baby-sitting duties, new friends, missing tourist kids... and a vampire with a tribal twist.

Spirits of Ash and Foam is the second installment in Greg Weisman's Rain of the Ghosts series.[1]

Conception

The book was originally scheduled to be released on May 13, 2014,[2] but it was pushed back to July 8.[3] Greg Weisman was ordered to write the second installment of the series at the end of October, 2012[4] and was asked to have it done by the end of May, 2013.[5] He spent November and December doing research and January and February outlining the story into 693 index cards.[4] By the time he started writing it in March, 2013, he soon realized that he could not meet his deadline, so it was pushed back to the end of August, 2013. However, due to his new commitment as a co-producer of Star Wars: Rebels, Weisman missed his second deadline and was given a "drop-dead date" of October 20, 2013.[5] The book was written between March and October 2013, and it comprises forty-five chapters.[6][7]
