Alex and the Curse of Creep

Alex finds that he and his brother are in peril again from the evil of Lord Creep who dwells inside of a book of forgotten tales, even though they are sure they destroyed him. A phantom curse infects Eric with a lethal disease and then links the curse to Alex. If one dies, the other dies. When Alex tells Steve, his friend from the first adventure, Steve tells him that the same phantom appeared and took his younger brother. Can Alex stop this curse before it claims all of their lives?
