Gormenghast

Publisher: Vintage Classics

Review

Enter the world of Gormenghast, to which the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, is Lord and heir. It is a kingdom of Byzantine rule and ancient ritual weighed down by centuries of intrigue, treachery, manipulation and murder.

A classic of the fantasy genre, perfect for those who have finished The Lord of the Rings and are looking to move on to some slightly more mature works.
