The blurb:

High in his attic bedroom, twelve-year-old David mourns the loss of his mother. He is angry and he is alone, with only the books on his shelf for company.

But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in the myths and fairytales so beloved by his dead mother he finds that the real world and the fantasy world have begun to meld. The Crooked Man has come, with his mocking smile and his enigmatic words: ' Welcome, your majesty. All hail the new King.'

And as war rages across Europe, David is violently propelled into a land that is both a construct of his imagination yet frighteningly real, a strange reflection of his own world composed of myths and stories, populated by wolfs and worse-than-wolves, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a mysterious book...

My opinion:
This is a perfect book for everyone who loves very horrific children's books with lots of bloody details....
