Arnystal Kensington has never considered herself special or unique. She has never thought that there was more to life than just surviving normal everyday occurrences. Content in being alone and devoted to work, Arnystal is visibly rattled when her seemingly calm lifestyle begins to become plagued by horrific dreams that threaten to steal her sanity. Fearing that she is trapped in a downward spiral that will lead to a padded room in a mental institution, she searches for outside explanations that could shed light on her slumbering torture. Arnystal could never have foreseen that she would have to solve a mystery that is hundreds of years old while facing a formidable foe that threatens her life and her friends. Conquering the fear of supernatural influences or that she may be psychotic is the least of her problems when she discovers the truth about the Water Skull.
