A Novella by

Isis Villiers, the youngest of four children, relocates with her family to a cold, ominous castle in England. Isis, along with Lewis, her eldest brother, and twin brothers Spence and Harvey, feels despondent about their move to their mentally unstable grandfather's estate. Gone are the days when they played with ease, performing their favorite play, Isis and Orisis, in which Isis brings her brother back from the dead. Worse still, the family burial crypt lies on the grounds. Between the raving madness of her grandfather, the ghost stories told by Old Marsh, the groundskeeper, and her evil governess, Edyth, Isis cannot help but feel a sense of foreboding.

All but ignored by brothers Lewis and Spence and her bedridden mother, Isis finds strength and happiness only in Harvey. He is her salvation, her protector. That is until they are aroused by the shrieks of Isis, who cries for dear life when Edyth pushes her in a fit of rage from an upstairs window. In a desperate attempt to save his sister, Harvey tries to pull Isis up, only to plunge to his own death.

Isis seeks the comfort of Old Marsh, who tells her twisted tales of people bringing their loved ones back from the dead through the majestic power of the burial crypt. Remembering her childhood play, Isis begins to wonder: can she channel her loss to bring Harvey back? And if so, will Harvey want to return from what might be the magnificent world of beyond?
