York, England. December. Mist lingers in the streets. Snow banks up against the city’s Roman walls and around the towering York Minster, one of the great medieval cathedrals of Europe.
The city of York is the most haunted place on earth: the ghosts of Viking pillagers, Roman soldiers, Catholic martyrs, hanged highwaymen, rebels and cavaliers, victims of the Black Death, and tragic royals all haunt its narrow lanes and half-timbered old buildings.
Two American teenagers arrive in this atmospheric ancient city. They don’t know it yet, but in York they’ll be forced to confront their greatest fears. In York, they’ll risk losing everything: the people they love, their sanity, even their lives.
