While some of them are fantastical and appealing, others can lead them to dark places around the universe. On the grounds, there’s a powerful presence that’s hidden away somewhere with a mysterious force that’s connected to the history of the family. One of them is even trapped in the grounds, but the Locke children have accidentally awakened that evil. They have to try and keep the keys out of her hands lest they risk her escaping.
