Rumours have been whispered about the Blackmoor since the late 1800s. Rumours of witchcraft, blood sacrifices and murder. Legend swirls about the Blackmoor like fog from the river.
Even more legendary than the Blackmoor is the family that calls it home.
Travis Vallon fled the Blackmoor when he turned eighteen, vowing that he would never return. The Blackmoor holds nothing but painful memories. Now, nearly ten years after he fled, Travis must return, to confront a dying father he thought never to see again. A father who has changed in the last ten years. Gone is the fiery and cruel tempered man of Travis’ nightmares and in his place is a frail and broken shell.
Jonathan Vallon is aware of his son’s hatred towards him. He knows he has earned it. But time is running out. There is much he must tell Travis, explain to the young man, before his final curtain call. Secrets, kept safeguarded by their family for generations, must be passed to Travis even if the boy does not wish to know them.
