The Book of Dead Days

Stacks Image 2029
Five days of gloriously gothic alchemy and evil.

The days between Christmas and New Year's Eve are dead days, when spirits roam and magic shifts just beneath the surface of our lives. A lot can happen in the dead days.

Set in a dark, dangerous city and in the frozen countryside of a distant time and place, The Book of Dead Days conjures a spell-binding story of power, corruption and desperate magic.
Marcus Sedgwick is a true original.
