Isabelle

“Isabelle” is a tale of long hidden secrets, tragedy, horror and nightmares. Cindra is the very young and very silly wife of Garrick, the Baron of Tadhgar. She is also cousin to King Eallair and the Duke Lochan, but responsibilities are the last thing on her mind. But she has to grow up fast when a supernatural being starts stalking her husband in his dreams.
