Twelve-year-old Reesa Bellemont moves with her family from sunny California to the dour Washington state coastline. Her father's uncle, Dr. Edward Bellemont-also known as Dr. Dred-willed a house there to Reesa's father, and the chance to move into the big, old place is too good an offer to pass up. Even as the seven Bellemonts and their dog cross the threshold of their new residence, however, strange and wicked things begin to occur. Reesa has always had special talents, and she feels particularly sensitive to the house's ill will. Even so, her father, Gavin, denies anything is wrong, and they remain in the house despite the odd occurrences. Soon, Reesa makes the acquaintance of Jerome White, a strange man who lives in a cabin deep in the woods. Jerome comes to the Bellemont house for dinner one night-but with his arrival, the dark forces truly manifest. Jerome is secretly the keeper of the Amulet of Prophecy, the second of the six Amulets of the Rainbow. Using his metaphysical abilities and the power of the amulet, he and Reesa must fight against an ancient force. The deceased Dr. Dred is somehow involved, and the lives of each and every Bellemont are now at stake. Jerome and Reesa are the family's last hope for surviving the evil that threatens their souls.
