“A strangely cozy but creeping novella for fans of ghostly encounters. Kingfisher’s returning characters remain as entertaining and loveable in a new and haunting setting, further building the world they started in What Moves the Dead.”

Description


An Instant New York Times, USA Today, and Indie Bestseller

Enter a cold, silent forest and find out what feasts at night in this new gothic tale from bestselling and award-winning author T. Kingfisher, set in the world of What Moves the Dead.


*A very special hardcover edition, featuring a foil stamp on the casing and custom endpapers illustrated by the author.*

After their terrifying ordeal at the Usher manor, Alex Easton feels as if they just survived another war. All they crave is rest, routine, and sunshine, but instead, as a favor to Angus and Miss Potter, they find themself heading to their family hunting lodge, deep in the cold, damp forests of their home country, Gallacia.

In theory, one can find relaxation in even the coldest and dampest of Gallacian autumns, but when Easton arrives, they find the caretaker dead, the lodge in disarray, and the grounds troubled by a strange, uncanny silence. The villagers whisper that a breath-stealing monster from folklore has taken up residence in Easton’s home. Easton knows better than to put too much stock in local superstitions, but they can tell that something is not quite right in their home. . . or in their dreams.
