Ella McKaye returns home for her grandmother's funeral to find she's inherited a ton of money and a run down mansion she never knew existed, called Grey Manor. Her greedy mother is appalled when the will stipulates specifically that Ella can't give her any of the inheritance. She quickly throws Ella out of her home forcing her to take up immediate residence in the spooky old mansion.
Within minutes of entering her new home she has a strange interaction with a creepy old mirror in the main hallway and the ghostly inhabitants of the past get more and more agitated the longer Ella's there. Nearly fatal back to back accidents make Ella start to wonder if she's angered some ghost or if there is something more sinister at work.
Will Ella unravel the deadly mystery before she becomes a ghost herself? Or will fate take another one of the Grey ancestors to the grave.
As she walked down a long hallway she thought about the house and how she felt about it, whether she liked it or not. She hadn’t decided one way or another really, except that it was huge for just one person. Regardless of how she felt about her new home, she really had no choice in the matter; after all, she had nowhere else to go. This thought rattled around in her mind as she walked down a long hall noting a large, ornate mirror hanging on the wall. As she passed by it, she thought she saw something other than herself moving in the mirror. She turned towards the mirror with a jerk, seeing her own reflection in the candlelight but there was something else too.
Was it a black mist? A play on the candlelight? Or a shadow? Yes, she thought, a shadowmoving from the edges towards the center. Her heart was pounding hard in her ears and her own breathing became deafening to her as she slowly raised the candle towards theshadow in the mirror.
The shadow reacted and jumped away from the light and so did Ella. She dropped the candle in her haste and sprinted towards the open front door just around the corner. Thankfully, the candle extinguished itself on its downward descent to the floor. Looking over her shoulder, not sure what she was expecting to see, she ran straight into a man who was now standing just outside the front door. She would have bounced off of him at full speed if he hadn’t grabbed her arms.
A scream escaped her when the man’s steel grip held her in place in front of him.
