Sweeping gothic conclusion to The Book of Dead Days.
Boy has survived the terrors of life with the magician Valerian, dark magic and deadly chases through gloomy catacombs. Now, as the City lies frozen in the icy claws of winter, he is captured and incarcerated in Emperor Frederick's palace.
In a mesmerising conclusion to their enthralling story, Boy and Willow are plunged into the heart of it - the whirlwind furies of the Emperor, the cold ambition of his confidante, Maxim, the tricks of necromancers, and a trail of blood that will lead to the grisly Phantom.
Holding all their lives within its pages, the Book of Dead Days waits to deceive its next reader.
