This fantasy tells the story of a Scottish slave, his English master’s daughter, and hordes of the Undead in the year 610. It combines themes of coming of age, horror, Merlin, Avalon, Celtic mythology, Dark Ages history, and young-adult romance. Suitable for readers age 13 to 103, it’s a good pick for those who enjoy: Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Lloyd Alexander’s The Chronicles of Prydain, and Jonathan Maberry’s Rot & Ruin. “A vivid account of seventh-century Britain ravaged by . . . ghouls! Intelligent, fluent storytelling rich with details of Celtic culture and the common life of the Angles make.” —A. A. Attanasio, author of Radix, The Dragon and the Unicorn, and other critically acclaimed fantasy novels
