“A startling and unusual creation by an author who had imagination to burn and burn again. A feat of storytelling unmatched in wit or imagination.” —SFF180

As the novel opens, Titus, lord of Castle Gormenghast, has abdicated his throne. Born and brought to the edge of manhood in the huge, rotting castle, Titus rebels against the age-old ritual of which he is both lord and prisoner and rushes headlong into the world.

From that moment forward, he is thrust into a stormy land of a dark imagination, where figures and landscapes loom up with the force and vividness of a dream—or a nightmare.

This final installment in the Gormenghast Trilogy is a fantastic triumph—a conquest awash in imagination, terror, and charm.

Introduction by David Louis Edelman

Praise for the Gormenghast Trilogy:

“There is nothing in literature like Mervyn Peake’s remarkable Gormenghast novels . . . They were crafted by a master, who was also an artist, and they take us to an ancient castle as big as a city, with heroes and villains and people larger than life that are impossible to forget.” —Neil Gaiman

“[Peake’s books] are actual additions to life; they give, like certain rare dreams, sensations we never had before, and enlarge our conception of the range of possible experience.” —C. S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia

“His inventiveness, his ingenuity, and his humor are astonishing.” —San Francisco Chronicle
