Apparently, there's something terrifying lurking in the mid morning shadows of Alexia's attic room but as long as the sun filters through those tattered blinds, saturating the room with white light, there's a good chance it should remain there sharpening its immaculately kept fingernails and lovingly smoking that black brand of cigarette - unless of course your best friend takes a wrong turn.

A thirteenth century cat hiding in the darkness not far away - an attic room no one dare enter - and an imaginary Devil standing at the doorway of an old Gothic house, makes the darkened attic windows of Alexia's house quite possibly rather inviting.
To outsiders, Alexia’s life might seem rather good, her world quite ordinary and in many ways she would have preferred it that way even though she did live in Hobbs Lane, a name considered by the Catholic belief system to be an alternative title for the devil. But somewhere, high up within the attic of her parents old Victorian house, Alexia harbored an ancient secret - a secret charged with the responsibility of protecting the world against The Darkness - a force of immeasurable - until without warning she dissapears.
With her nan gone and the truth that her mom, taken by a darkness many years ago, may not have been all she seemed, Alexia must face her nightmares alone with only Bertram, a rather sinister eleventh century cat, to guide and protect her.
