Thrilling mystery from the Carnegie Medal winning author. On a stormy winter's night an old man sits over his wine cup and tells a tale: of the Lord Aleslan and his evil deeds; of the good wife who could not influence him for the better and died, leaving a son; and of her brother, who stole the child to save it from Aleslan's evil. And now the son returns - Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers of 12+
