Sent into the forest to gather firewood for the medieval abbey where he's an apprentice, Will hears a cry for help, and comes upon a creature no bigger than a cat. Trapped and wounded, it's a hobgoblin, who confesses a horrible secret: Something is buried deep in the snow, just beyond the graveyard. A mythical being, doomed by an ancient curse...

What does this mystery have to do with the cryptic brotherhood of monks Will serves? What does it have to do with the boy himself? When two cloaked figures darken the church's doorway and start demanding answers, Will is drawn into a dangerous world of Old Magic.

PAT WALSH is a trained archaeologist as well as an amateur historian, inspired by the rich mythology of Britain. Born in a haunted house in Kent, she now lives in Bedfordshire, England, with her husband and children. The Crowfield Demon is the sequel to The Crowfield Curse, her debut novel.
