Lake Price isn't your average teenage girl. Sure, she and her friends are doing what many other high school kids do on Cape Cod: heading to Chatham Manornicknamed ';Hell'for a good scare. But for Lake, it's more than just a thrill-seeking game. It's what keeps her alive. Ever since her brother, Kimball, disappeared four years ago, Lake has needed the danger and the fear to feel anything but numb. But on this night, ';Hell' has more in store for Lake than she ever anticipated: A handsome stranger from the 17th century, a modern love triangle, a coven of witches, a hint that Kimball may still be alive and the start to something that only she can finish.
