About this book
A haunting fantasy-mystery set in the grounds of a medieval abbey. It depicts the thrilling clash between the forces of old natural magic and new ideas of Christianity, through the eyes of an orphan boy and his friend, a hob-goblin. An acclaimed debut, which is the first in a projected series.
It's 1347 and fifteen-year-old Will, an orphan boy, lives at Crowfield Abbey. Sent into the forest to gather wood, he rescues instead, a creature from a trap - a hob, who shares with Will a terrible secret. Somewhere in the forest behind the abbey where he lives, is a grave. And buried deep in the snow is an angel. But how can an angel die?
