Not yet rated | write a review

Hans doesn''t know who he is or where he came from. When he was a baby, he washed ashore in a wooden box and was adopted by the conniving grave robber Knobbe the Bent. Now fate has thrown him together with Angela von Schwanenberg, a young countess fleeing for her life from the evil Archduke Arnulf and his dreaded Necromancer. Together, these friends go on a daring quest to discover Hans''s true identity and save Angela''s parents from the archduke.

Join Hans and Angela on their grand adventure as they ride through the depths of the great forest, sled down a mountain in a coffin and sneak along the secret passageways of the archduke''s palace. The Grave Robber''s Apprentice is a world of highwaymen, hermits and dancing bears-and of a boy separated from his family by the sea.

In this world anything is possible with luck and imagination-even for a grave robber''s apprentice.

Editorial Reviews

?Funny, imaginative, just thrilling enough, and doesn?t take itself too seriously. . . . Stratton handles the tropes and clichÉs of fairy-tale fantasy with a wink and a playful sense of destruction.? ?QUILL & QUIRE (Starred review)
