Tale 3 from The Secrets of Castle Drakon by Jillian Ward
A Supernatural Twist – The brothers Bolton are contacted by the weird Mr Greenleaf to sell Castle Drakon, an old manor house with a bad reputation, but the brothers have very different ways of going about it. What each brother discovers about Castle Drakon sets them on different paths.
So, I thought something would pounce the brothers on their first visit to the abandoned property, and actually held my breath. Fiction twists though, doesn't it, for this story went somewhere far stranger than expectation. Well done, I say!
