On the outskirts of Oxford, England, there is a large manor run by an old man and his daughter. This place is known as Aetherius Manerij. Here, few people are saved from their sufferable lives and
taken in for rehabilitation. These people can vary from orphaned teens to former asylum inmates. What they all have in common; they've all been through hell.

One day, Lydia Rein is shipped out of prison and to Aetherius Manerij. The people seem nice, the manor looks grand, and the meals and clothes offered are both well, to say the least. However, minor
oddities have always plagued the place. These seem to worsen when Lydia arrives, or so the other patients say. While it seems like nothing, Lydia does not realize that her arrival has triggered
something to awaken. It doesn't take long before the darkness begins to grow, as a mysterious force drives these mentally-challenged inhabitants to their knees...

Welcome to Twisted Souls. I'm not gonna say 'read if you dare,' or any of that cheesy sh*t. Seriously, though, this book will have some slightly disturbing content.

Anyways, I just want any readers to please note that this is my first book that isn't somehow related to TFR. If you see something that could use a bit of improving, please tell me. I could really
use feedback, now. Other than that, please enjoy!
