Abstract:

An isolated, forlorn estate ... a very young, inexperienced governess ... the boy, Miles, the girl, Flora--two angelically beautiful, strangely distant children ... and the fiends. Phantoms of shadow and madness, twin creatures of evil, ghosts of the condemned. Two figures, half-seen, lurking in twilit windows and dark towers, beckoning ... silent ... coming ever closer. Walking dead who seek to control the children's bodies, steal their minds, destroy their souls ... Flora and Miles claim to see and hear nothing. But, with mounting horror, their governess discovers the children want the ghosts-- As much as the evil wants them ... Tor Classics are affordably-priced editions designed to attract the young reader. Original dynamic cover art enthusiastically represents the excitement of each story.
