What could be more idyllic than to live on an island off the coast of Maine? That's what Bill Andersen thought when he moved his family to Mateguas. But Mateguas is more than just pristine beaches nestled between rocky shores. No, Mateguas is something quite different, as Bill and his family will soon find out.
On a remote island, a troubled family is trying to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives and start over. But, unbeknownst to them, the property they have inherited is steeped in ancient magic - magic that could seek to consume and destroy them.
An arcane locked box, a strange and foreboding trail leading deep into the woods, a seductive young woman, and tales of a malevolent Native American spirit are just some of the perils Karen Andersen must face if she is to find a way to save her family.
