Sinister Ceremony: A World of Gothic - Maine
Despite former flame Austin Marlett’s concerns, newly engaged Darcy Emerick accompanies fiancé Brent Asherton on a weekend trip to his familial home. Located on the coast of Maine, it’s a Gothic mansion built high on a cliff overlooking the sea, where long ago, a bride died a sudden and tragic death.
Once the couple reaches Asherton House, Darcy quickly realizes that something is amiss. Brent’s father is treated like a servant, his niece is mute, and Grandmother must not be disturbed in her room. Stranger still, a post-mortem photo hangs in the parlor and black crows haunt the property.
When Darcy learns that Brent’s sister and three aunts expect them to marry that very weekend, she wishes she’d listened to Austin. The women demand to know if she’s a virgin and insist on her wearing a dead ancestor’s wedding gown and the red spinel ring that’s been handed down for generations.
After experiencing visions and a physical attack, Darcy knows she’s made a terrible mistake. To her immense relief, Austin rides in as her knight in shining armor, but he may be too late, for a menacing presence is restless for a sacrifice, and Darcy has been chosen.
