Yet the mysterious Lord Devlin pleads for Rosaria to help cure of him of a terrible curse through science and the powers of nature. Terrified by the monstrous appearance hidden beneath his veil, yet intrigued by the challenge, Rosaria accepts and embarks on an adventure for which her scientific education did not prepare her.
