A young earl’s future in a sprawling castle could be changed by a feral girl and a cunning servant in this acclaimed gothic fantasy trilogy’s second entry.

Titus Groan is seven years old, lord and heir to the crumbling castle Gormenghast. A gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old rituals, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, and death. Steerpike, who began his climb across the roofs when Titus was born, is now ascending the spiral staircase to the heart of the castle, and in his wake lie imprisonment, manipulation, and murder . . .

Gormenghast is the second volume in Mervyn Peake’s widely acclaimed trilogy, but it is much more than a sequel to Titus Groan—it is an enrichment and deepening of that book.

The Gormenghast Trilogy ranks as one of the twentieth century’s most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.

Praise for Gormenghast

Gormenghast is must-read fiction, that’s all. You’ll finish it with a small spike of regret stabbing at your heart, and a desire to start again at page one the moment the back cover is closed. It’s a tale to be cherished for life. This is as good as it gets.” —Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Reviews
