This work is an intriguingly written work of fiction which will captivate the reader. While visiting his distant relative Ingrid Fletcher, Hugh Drapier, a Highland Scot, asks her to take him to the unusual rock formation called Devil's Tor. The formation resembles the head of a gargoyle. As they are looking at the rock, lightning strikes it, exposing an underground tomb. Hugh investigates the tomb and sees a beautiful woman appear on a stone table in the middle of the tomb. The vision fades away. Further into the tomb, Hugh finds a stone similar to one Ingrid has. By gazing at the stones, another world is revealed.
