The Court of Ghosts is an epic tale of love, loss, tragedy and rebuilding. Fran and Ed's lives criss cross becoming one and diverging again. 

This is a long summer read; one most definitely worth undertaking.

This is an epic tale following the life paths of two boys born into different social stations who love each other. Separated by the the same violent attack on their lands, orphaned, and each believing the other dead, one finds a kindly benefactor and his salvation, while the other is led into years of twisted abuse which breeds an insatiable desire for revenge.

This is a morality play, a rousing adventure, an inside view of court intrigues, and a tragedy of lost love.

These are unforgettable characters you cannot help but feel for and a story which will linger in your memory.
