Story

There’s a half-forgotten structure hidden in the hills of the Coyote Valley and twins Luisa and Frederico Puerta aren’t leaving until they find out what happened there 15 years ago. After their estranged mother Anna succeeded there as leader of The Watchers of Azazel, everything changed. The flames were seen by a local farmer, the screams heard by a passing hiker, the blood seen by noone. What happened to the cult’s members? Where is Anna Peurta?
