A girl wakes up in a room where there’s a strange clock, a black owl and a church pew. With no clue on how she got there, she tries to leave but a man on the other side of the door tells her she must stay there until the clock strikes pass the thirteen hour. Who is this man? And why doesn’t he want her to leave the room? Why doesn’t she remember who she is?

Excerpt

At first, I hear the sound of a bird flapping its wings. Then my heartbeat pounding in my ears like thunder. My head hurts. As I open my eyes a little, my vision is blurry and dark. A shadow moves from right to left and disappears farther in the room. I blink for a while, as if this would help me see better, and then I start to distinguish objects.
