In The Marsh Keeper – Book One,16-year-old Calvin Hughes can see human energy and, in that light, learns the darkest secrets of those around him. Lured toward the marsh by a young girl’s disappearance, Cal is drawn into a realm of supernatural temptations that challenge his ability, unaware that his choices reverberate far beyond his own world — just like the ripples of the haunted waters.

According to Kirkus Reviews, ”Werbitsky’s prose and dialogue create an eerie sense of dislocation. Cal and Eva’s characterizations are particularly refreshing … it makes the prospect of a sequel appealing.”
