The Book of Lost Things

John Connolly

High in his attic bedroom, 12-year-old David mourns the death of his mother. He is angry and alone, with only the books on the shelf for company. But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in his imagination, he finds that reality and imagination have begun to meld. While war rages across Europe, David is violently propelled into a land that is both a construct of his imagination yet frighteningly real, a strange reflection of his own world composed of myths and stories, populated by wolves and worse-than-wolves, and ruled over by a faded king who keeps his secrets in a legendary book...
