       Additional Information  
      One day young Dario Figg is found wandering alone in an unfamiliar town with all of his memories completely erased! The kind townspeople place Dario in the local orphanage while waiting for his memory to return. Unfortunately, the only clues to Dario's past are dreadful, vivid nightmares, where he finds himself in a horrifying place that may once have been his home-a town completely cursed by an evil phantom. Ghosts, goblins, zombies, and ghouls under the phantom's spell pursue Dario every time he falls asleep. Is Dario truly safe from harm while just dreaming?

    As an extraordinary old wizard helps Dario use his nightmares to discover who he is and how he escaped, Dario realizes he may not want his memory back. Sharing adventures with his new friends among the bizarre collection of orphans seems so much better than facing his awful past. But has Dario really escaped the phantom's curse? Can Dario, with the help of his new friends, discover and change the grim fate that secretly awaits them all?
