"The Sly Phantom", second of a series following "The Funny Necromancer" – Synopsis
Lite Yeer is an orphan who lives with her horrible aunts, Gretchen and Bridget Slug, for whom she must do chores and sleep in the dog house. When she reaches eleven, Màrs, a DNA-free sorcerer, comes out of her watch and tells her that she can time travel and that in going to the past, she will escape from her aunts. Then she goes to the seventeenth century whose peoples she brings back to life. In so doing, she acts as a necromancer – a funny one, because she doesn’t use common magic, but astromagic which is the art of governing planets, stars, and moons for the purpose of time travelling.
In reaching September 1 of year 1666, she enters the ghost world where she meets her ancestor, the knight Roger. At the service of the Queen of Denmark, with Lite’s help Roger puts London ablaze and creates the 1666 Fire. By that way, Lite damages Moyo’s Time Wheel. Moyo, who is a five billion years old elf, has enough of his life. But he can disappear only if he time travels to the Big Bang, which will destroy the Universe, himself included. Luckily, in visiting different eras, Lite keeps ruining his Time Wheel, which prevents him from performing his apocalypse.
In the ghost world, Lite is reluctant to deal with a poltergeist, death angels, and a giant ant whose victims it eats and excretes in the form of stinking ghosts. But she surprises even herself by her resourcefulness as an illusion-maker. In the end, she succeeds in taking revenge over her aunts by producing false evidence which incriminates them for a baby swap, which convinces a judge to send them to jail and which is the only way for justice to prevail.
