But now strange horrors are stirring inside the palace walls. In the dead of night, something terrible stalks the corridors. Then Alfred’s beloved mother, the Queen, is dragged off to the Tower of London. Evil forces are at work, and soon Alfred must battle the Beast of Buckingham Palace to save his mother, and the entire world…
