Opal thinks that nothing good could ever happen, not in the bad luck magnet town of Eden Kentucky, and not to someone like her. She's the struggling, barely adult orphan daughter of a con-artist, perpetually poor, and a fierce, mostly legal guardian to her younger brother Jasper. She finds freedom only in her dreams, where she walks the ground of Starling House, the engimatic, decaying mansion up the hill, once home to a notorious cult-classic horror novelist. When Opal teams up with the reluctant caretaker of the house, they will uncover secrets, terrors, a world below Starling House; in the process, they hope to save a town, and maybe even give Opal a home.
