One boy, a wolf, and a perilous journey: a fantasy that weaves the fabric of well-loved stories into an epic adventure.
Long ago, Malabron the Night King tried to turn all stories into one, his story, a nightmare of absolute power. But when Will, a rebellious teenager, stumbles from the present into the realm where stories come from, he is caught up in Malabron's evil designs. Aided by some of the story folk including the feisty Rowen, her grandfather Pendrake (a loremaster) and Shade, the laconic but loyal wolf, Will must combat a host of perils, if he is ever to find the gateless gate that will take him home. The author is an award-winning writer of adult literary fantasy, whose work has been translated into several languages.
