The first night was long and frightening. In the middle of the night, he was awakened by an unnatural sound. This happened while he thought he was the only one in this godforsaken castle. He immediately opened his eyes and heard the noise of heavy wood and chains being dragged over the uneven stone floor. Silent and paralysed with fear, he listened to the events from under his blanket. First the eerie sound came closer, but it soon disappeared in the opposite direction from whence it came. Troubled by immense fear, he was unable to continue his sleep. Gazing at the door, he expected that someone or something would enter at any moment. The hours went by, and he did not close his eyes anymore. He barely even dared to blink, let alone be distracted by his world of dreams. If only he could dream, because it now seemed like he found himself in one of his terrifying nightmares. After the longest night of his existence, his exhausted body fell asleep at the crack of dawn, only to awake late in the afternoon. As soon as Lucius opened his eyes, he did not hesitate to rise fast from the mere slightly comfortable bed. Expeditiously, he moved towards the door. When he opened it, there was still no one to be seen in the long hallway that lay behind it. As he rubbed the sleep from his eyes, he was able to focus more and more on what he beheld. He soon discovered that there were dark red stains both on the floor and on the opposite wall. One of the spots seemed to be the shape of a hand, smeared by a narrow palm with long thin fingers.

Absolute aanrader voor liefhebbers van klassieke gotische romans! Het boek is geschreven in een aangename schrijfstijl die goed aansluit bij boeken als Frankenstein of Dracula en leest lekker weg.
