About the Book
Old Marsh, the gardener at Belerion Hall, warned the Villiers girl about the dark places and old ruins along the sea-cliffs. "Never go in, miss. Never say a prayer at its door. If you are angry, do not seek revenge by the Laughing Maiden stone or at the threshold of the Tombs. There be those who listen for oaths and vows....What may be said in innocence becomes flesh and blood in such places."
But when a tragic accident occurs from the ledge of an open window, Iris Villiers discovers that she possesses a terrifying psychic ability...
From Publishers Weekly
"Clegg (The Abandoned) expands the burgeoning backstory of his multivolume Harrow haunted house saga with this poignant chamber tragedy involving young Iris Catherine Villiers (who, as an adult, will become Isis Claviger, oracle of the spook-ridden Hudson Valley academy)...This potent novella, one of Clegg's best, is both a stand-alone triumph and a powerful new chapter in his evolving series."
From Fangoria Magazine:
"...a story of love, loss and longing...told with the beautiful prose of an old-fashioned Gothic era."
From The Strand magazine:
"Haunting yet poignant, Isis is a work that should firmly place Clegg among the all-stars of horror such as Straub, Machen, LeFanu, and Stoker.
