The sorceress Lady Lamorna has her heart set on a new robe. To get it she will stop at nothing, including kidnapping, blackmail and more than a little black magic. But she reckons without the heroic Gracie Gillypot, not to mention a gallant if rather scruffy prince, two chatty bats, the wickedest stepsister ever, a troll with a grudge - and some very Ancient Crones.

High above the mountain village of Fracture, trouble is brewing.

An exuberant, fast-moving and wildly entertaining tale, with a cast of characters who are good, bad and very, very ugly, The Robe of Skulls will enthral those who like their stories just a little different.

Shortlisted for the 2008 Royal Mail Book Awards
