Rain of the Ghosts is the first in Greg Weisman's series about an adventurous young girl, Rain Cacique, who discovers she has a mystery to solve, a mission to complete and, oh, yes, the ability to see ghosts.
Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them: the Ghost Keys), a beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. Rain Cacique is water-skiing with her two best friends Charlie and Miranda when Rain sees her father waiting for her at the dock. Sebastian Bohique, her maternal grandfather, has passed away. He was the only person who ever made Rain feel special. The only one who believed she could do something important with her life. The only thing she has left to remember him by is the armband he used to wear: two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other's tails in their mouths. Only the armband . . . and the gift it brings: Rain can see dead people. Starting with the Dark Man: a ghost determined to reveal the Ghost Keys' hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure.

A beginning with a lot of potential
Forewarning: I Kickstarted this, so I was looking forward to it before it even came out.
I just listened to it for a second time, and was just as pleased with it the second time.
It's an introduction, and spends a LOT of time setting the scene. In fact, there's more scene-setting than "real" story.
That aside, there's a ton of potential here. It is well acted, the characters are compelling written and the voice-acting is great.
In fact, the delivery is the best part. The voice acting is absurdly dynamic.
I'm eagerly looking forward to the next bit.
