The Fear name brings fortune...and doom.

The dark power of the Fear family consumes all those connected with it. The Fears. Those they love -- and hate. The entire town of Shadyside. All are tainted forever by the evil of the family's curse.

Except one. A new Fear. The child of Nora and Daniel. Will he be able to live his life untouched by the evil of his family? Or will the dark forces claim yet another Fear for their own?
