There is a very real darkness that dwells deep in our souls – and some have learned to set it free.
When Laura Kamryn disappears on a trip back to her remote hometown, her distraught fiance Rey Morfin convinces Laura’s childhood friend Anna Tyndall to return to the small town of Redbury to help investigate. Using Anna’s knowledge of the local area, and more importantly, the people, Rey hopes to find Laura – alive.
But beneath the surface, a wickedness stirs. The residents allude to a rampant fire that scarred the town, a witch from whom the children flee, and monstrous shapes that lurk in the shadows.
Rey’s journey will take him to the darkest corners of the English countryside, encountering a mysterious root, afternoon tea, and beings that are perhaps human no more.
