As a boy, Christian Huxley witnessed his mother's suicide after a raid from Kylhuk and his Arthurian warriors. As a young man, Christian again encounters Kylhuk and begins a dangerous quest in order to try to bring his mother back to life.
A must for all readers of Holdstock - the story that precedes MYTHAGO WOOD This novel tells the story which precedes MYTHAGO WOOD. Steven Huxley's father, George, and brother, Christian, are the protagonists, and George's discovery of the primeval woodland which holds the "mythagos" - figures from myth, legend or dream - is detailed. Christian's introduction to the wood is fasciantingly drawn and in many ways this is the most fantastical of the entire series.
