Kit Gordy sees Blackwood Hall towering over its black iron gates, and a wave of fear shivers through her, bringing one word to mind: evil. But Kit, one of only four girls at this highly exclusive boarding school, realizes she has to at least make it through to winter break, and so she tries to ignore the rumors that Blackwood is haunted.

However, extraordinary talents soon begin to surface among her peers and everything becomes overshadowed by the magic around them. When Kit and her friends realize Blackwood isn’t what it claims to be, it might be too late. The entire class could become slaves to the dead.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lois Duncan’s thrillers have a timeless quality about them. They are good stories, very well told, that also happen to illuminate both the heroic and dark parts of growing up.”

    Marc Talbert, author of Heart of a Jaguar

  • “If ever a writer’s work should be brought before each new generation of young readers, it is that of Lois Duncan.”

    Chris Crutcher, author of Anger Management

  • “Written in 1974, this scary story is just as relevant today—an amazing feat. Emma Galvin’s outstanding narration adds to the timeliness. When Kit Gordy is sent to school at Blackwood Hall, she immediately senses an evil presence. She ignores her feelings because her mom and stepfather are on their European honeymoon. Galvin eerily portrays the sinister school, staff, and faculty, as well as the terror of the students as events become more and more mysterious. This plain and simple horror story is wonderfully devoid of twenty-first-century trappings.”
