The Crowfield Demon by Pat Walsh


The Crowfield Demon by Pat Walsh

It is March 1348. Evil lurks in Crowfield Abbey and the building is starting to collapse. Fay creatures have fled the surrounding forest in terror. Repairs begin and William is given the job of lifting floor tiles in a haunted side chapel. There he finds a box from an earlier pagan time containing a small wooden bowl, covered with strange warnings and symbols. The bowl is cursed and a hideous demon is unleashed that will wreak unspeakable havoc within the Abbey's walls. Can Will and his friends summon help in time or is it the end of Crowfield forever? The second book in the Crowfield series.


PRAISE FOR THE CROWFIELD CURSE * A wondrous mystery. Walsh described the environment with calm sensory detail, giving readers a palpably damp, frigid winter. Understatedly tender and mystical yet solid. -- Kirkus, starred review * Suspenseful and spooky. With fascinating attention to detail and an edgy battle between evil and good, Walsh sweeps readers almost effortlessly into another time and place. By the close of the novel, readers are hoping for more, and the ending suggests that more is to come.
