Led by an strange force, Kendra becomes the first outsider to visit a small isolated town of
Kassel. Taking the only teaching position in town, Kendra struggles with more than just trying to fit in: a bizarre "Town Curfew", dark forest creatures, disappearances, a supernatural barrier wrapping around the town, and reticent town folks.
Tired of living in fear, the children step forward and help Kendra to discover their secret;
they haven't aged in over two hundred years as they live in purgatory. Using the old texts saved in the library, (cause that never occured to anyone in 200 years??) Kendra finds the answers she needs to hunt down the witch who started it all, Rhianna.
Kendra faces her using Rhianna's own spell against her and frees the town. Or so she thinks. But it's not over: nightmares follow Kendra back to her old life and force her to return to Kassel once again. There, she discovers that Rhianna is not only still alive, but that she is murdering the entire town.
By mass draining their life force, Rhianna is on the verge of creating a perfect child and sealing her immortality when Kendra confronts her. Rhianna, wishing for companionship, gives Kendra the choice between immortality or death, Kendra gathers her wits to fight against Rhianna and her dark powers.
This is a list of events, not a hook. It's also got some fundamental failures of logic.
