Titus Groan PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Titus Groan free pdf As the first novel opens, Titus, heir to Lord Sepulchrave, has just been born, he stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that stand for Gormenghast Castle. Inside, all events are predetermined by a complex ritual, lost in history, understood only by Sourdust, Lord of the Library. There are tears and strange laughter- fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings- dreams and violence and disenchantment contained within a labyrinth of stone.
