Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, has his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.

18 year old Vic McQueen discovers she can cross an old covered bridge on her motorbike and it will take her anywhere in the world where a lost thing is located. Meanwhile a mysterious old man named Charlie Manx kidnaps a young boy, killing his parents, and seems to be draining his life force as they drive to a mysterious place called "Christmasland." Maggie, a young woman who was friends with the boy and his family, has the special power of drawing Scrabble tiles from in a bag that spell out a clue to find missing things. She uses this to try and find the lost boy.

I liked the book a lot, and I'm pleased with the pilot. Several key differences (that I can't tell whether they'll resolve or not), but this is a show-only thread, so best to leave that alone. Interested to see how it goes.

I want to watch this, but mainly because Sailor J is in it.
