If you’ve read this far, then you know the cats are about to show their full plan. The price for all of Bethany’s good luck.
The longer they stay in Plain House, the stranger things get. Bethany’s new and improved life is showing some more of its… changes. Its costs. Its cracks. And soon, she may need to face the full scope of this supernatural house.
