Sixteen-year-old photography enthusiast Zoey has been fascinated by the haunted, burnt-out ruins of Medwyn Mill House for as long as she can remember–so she and her best friend, Poulton, run away from home to explore them. But are they really alone in the house? And who will know if something goes wrong?
In 1851, seventeen-year-old Roan arrives at the Mill House as a ward–one of three, all with something to hide from their new guardian. When Roan learns that she is connected to an ancient secret, she must escape the house before she is trapped forever.
1583. Hermione, a new young bride, accompanies her husband to the wilds of North Wales where he plans to build the largest water mill and mansion in the area. But rumors of unholy rituals lead to a tragic occurrence and she will need all her strength to defeat it.
Three women, centuries apart, drawn together by one Unholy Pact. A pact made by a man who, more than a thousand years later, may still be watching… This haunting and captivating mystery redefines the horror and fantasy space.

“Answer,” he snaps.
“What are you doing here?”
“My name is Roan Eddington—”
“Where are you going?”
“Mill House!” Her cheeks flush, like rose water dripped into cream. She is not embarrassed or afraid, however. He can see that she is enraged. This relieves and calms him.
Coming to Devil’s Peak as well. So. She is one of the three. “Do you mean the old mill?”
“You know it.”
“Yes. And I know Dr.—”
She points to her portmanteau. “Then kindly show me the way.”
“Are you always so direct?” he asks through gritted teeth.”
