The Fall of the House of Usher

The House of Usher is alive. Or at least that’s what it says in the letter Thomas receives from his old school friend, Roderick Usher. 

Determined and excited to solve the mystery of a lifetime, eighteen-year-old Thomas ditches his responsibilities as a young aristocrat and rides to his friend’s aid, but what he finds in the house is far more disturbing than any nightmare. The House of Usher is indeed alive, but it’s very sick… and it’s being haunted by something unnatural, a gathering force trying to claw its way into the mortal world. When Madeline, Roderick’s sister, dies, things begin to spiral out of control. Can Thomas fight the darkness that is threatening to destroy the world or will he perish with it?
