Evil never dies.
A gothic tale of magic and necromancy in a remote boarding school on the moors of North Yorkshire, for fans of A Discovery of Witches of The Historian.
It begins with a book.
It ends in fire.
Zuleika Rathbone is a neuroscientist and historian, scholar of witchcraft, ghosts and other such creations. She is summoned to the wilds of North Yorkshire to inspect a medieval grimoire—a book of spells—discovered in the cloisters of an historic abbey. Built in the ruins of a monastery renowned for corruption and the study of dark magic until its destruction by Henry VIII five centuries ago, Beauregard Abbey is now an elite boarding school.
On the day of her arrival at Beauregard, Zuleika uncovers an eighteenth-century violin, walled away for three hundred years, and the thin veneer hiding Beauregard’s cursed, necromantic past begins to crumble.
The personality of a brilliant young violinist, chosen to play the violin, undergoes a sinister change.
Apparitions of malevolent spirits from the dark realm of fairyland turn the school production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream into a nightmare.
The bones of a witch are unearthed in an unhallowed place...
...and Zuleika finds herself—and the school—in the grip of an ancient evil; in a place where delusions of the mind come true.
A story of Gothic suspense set in the remote moorlands of northern England.
This edition has ALL the chapters; I'm not sure if it's possible for those who had an earlier version to download the book again.
