Dale and Lucy come to the centuries-old, four-story mansion that has been converted into an inn in South Wales to investigate the rumors of paranormal happenings.
Machen, the present owner, has forbidden Dale and Lucy from investigating the final floor, using the excuse the renovations were never completed.
Things go bump in the night. Lucy senses things Champ, the old German shepherd, probably sees, and soon she is sleepwalking around upstairs on the fourth floor.
Is it the Maid of Sker lurking about and staring out windows on the fourth floor?
There is something about the fourth floor.
And perhaps something else hidden away deeper within.
Don’t ask questions you don’t want answered.
Welcome to Sker House, where even the ground is poisoned and nothing but the most stubborn of weeds will flourish. But there is a mysterious walled garden. Or is there? Perhaps that’s one of the secrets Sker House intends to keep.
The key to everything is within reach.
And then a storm blows in from the sea and the power goes out, and confessions are made, history revealed, and secrets unveiled inside the old mansion.
Magic may be forgotten over time, but time does nothing to dilute it.
The past will always come back to haunt you.
The desolate, claustrophobic feel of Sker House is enjoyable to those of us who like our ghost stories full of cold drafts, shadows, and faces in windows. It’s a different but familiar tale, an homage to the classic ghost tales, and that’s a great thing.
And it’s more.
Sometimes what happened in the past has dire repercussions in the present.
I enjoyed every eerie page.
Consider this your invitation to Sker House. Come and experience it for yourself.
