There's something in the shadows which lurks there unseen except on the odd occasion when we think we see them in the corner of our eye. We turn to look but there is nothing there. At least that's what we think. But they're always there and they're always watching and waiting and shaping our dreams into the nightmares based upon our weirdest phobias... Their goal is simple; to scare us to death so that our souls burst from within leaving nothing but an empty space for them to fill. When we wake in the morning, we are no longer the same person. We are gone, trapped in the shadows...

Her visions of this child have always been strong and surreal. Now they're becoming too powerful to ignore. Carrot is guiding Emily. Determined to find the answers, Emily starts down a deadly and terrifying path, following Carrot into madness.
