The story so far...
Chatting with Lara, Cassidy learns that the purpose for "in-betweeners" is to free the spirits trapped in the Veil. Lara walks Cassidy through sending her first ghost on, but warns Cassidy to guard her thread of life against spirits that would otherwise do her harm. The warning comes too late as the Raven in Red soon snatches Jacob beyond the Veil to lure Cassidy away from her parents, and tears Cassidy’s blue-white ribbon of life from her chest. Like Jacob, Cassidy is now something in between life and death, and trapped behind the Veil in the real city of ghosts.
Lara reveals that the Raven will most likely attempt to use Cassidy’s life thread to bring herself back from the dead, so the three reluctant friends work together to stop the Raven’s plan. After battling the ghosts of the Raven’s previous victims and with Cassidy quickly running out of time, Cassidy succeeds in reclaiming her life thread (now a bit worse for wear) against all odds and defeats the Raven, but her precious camera is broken in the process. Before leaving Scotland, Cassidy is gifted a new camera lens and has her photos from the trip developed. Oddly, Jacob now seems to almost show up in one. But with no time to waste, Cassidy and her family head to the airport for their next adventure.
