About the book
March 1348. Crowfield Abbey is starting to collapse.
William is given the job of repairing 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 within the Abbey's walls. It will wreak unspeakable havoc unless Will and his friends can summon help in time.
“The battle between good and evil is intense and frightening, keeping readers on edge.”
SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
“[Walsh] is a wonderful storyteller, and the creepy sense of foreboding ... is really tangible.”
“Once again Pat Walsh brings the cloistered world of Crowfield vividly to life.”
