Wyntertide: Rotherweird Book II

Andrew Caldecott

9 Reviews

Rated 0

Rotherweird, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Fantasy

ROTHERWEIRD, a place of 'special and dangerous properties' (Hilary Mantel), has resumed its abnormal normality after a happy ending to the travails of summer.

'Intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book with special and dangerous properties' Hilary Mantel on Rotherweird

'Baroque, Byzantine and beautiful - not to mention bold' - M.R. Carey on Rotherweird


For four hundred years, the town of Rotherweird has stood alone, made independent from the rest of England to protect a deadly secret.

But someone is playing a very long game. An intricate plot, centuries in the making, is on the move.

Everything points to one objective - the resurrection of Rotherweird's dark Elizabethan past - and to one date: the Winter Equinox.

Wynter is coming . . .
