The chilling sequel to the critically acclaimed The Crowfield Curse

In The Crowfield Curse, young monks' apprentice Will discovered he was gifted with "The Sight": able to see beyond the mortal world into the realms of Magic. Protected by the powerful fay Shadlok-and accompanied by the wry, wary hobgoblin nicknamed Brother Walter-Will faced down the sheer force of evil.

But now the Crowfield monastery has begun to crumble. As Will slaves to salvage the wreckage of the chapel, he discovers something truly terrifying: a haunted relic buried beneath the rubble. Free at last, a hideous demon from a pagan past is about to unleash hell on holy ground!

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.

Fox fur. He glanced back down at the blood. There was a great deal of it, yet there was no sign of the injured animal and no trail of blood to show where it had gone.Will noticed something else on the bloodstained ground: a bundle of oak twigs, tied with a length of wool. A cold chill of foreboding crept over him. He looked up and saw that the boy was staring at the abbey with a strange expression on his face....
