A Cursed Goden Goblet

When the Luck of the Vails is lost,

Fear not fire nor rain nor frost;

When the Luck is found again,

Fear both fire and frost and rain

The Luck of the Vails revolves around a cursed golden goblet that has been in the possession of the Vail family for generations. When Harry Vail, twelfth baronet, discovers the chalice in an attic, has he unleashed the curse? Is the family curse coming true with supernatural elements at play? Or is it something far more down to earth? Only the surprising ending will reveal all.
