It is the third year since the strange castle, known to the residents of Calder Cove as Merlin's School, appeared in the seaside town. 




They are still viewing it with trepidation, more so this year as things that had been accepted - though odd - suddenly become dark and dire when a teacher is killed. Students are now more than ever reluctant to enter the confines of the building, but their choices are removed by an enchantment that draws the selected few in. 


Will they find out who the murderer is? Or will the the murderer find them first?  


Fantasy adventure for all the family.
