At the heart of the wildwood lies a place of mystery and legend, from which few return and none emerged unchanged: Lavondyss . . . the ultimate realm, the source of all myth.

When Harry Keeton disappeared into Ryhope Wood, his sister Tallis was just an infant. Now, thirteen years old, she hears him whispering to her from the Otherworld. He is in danger. He needs her help. Using masks, magic and clues left by her grandfather, she finds a way to enter the primitive forest and begin her search. Eventually she comes to Lavondyss itself, a realm both beautiful and deadly, a place in which she is changed forever . . .

Robert Holdstock's Mythago Wood won the World Fantasy Award and is among the most praised post-war novels of the fantastical. In this haunting sequel, Lavondyss, we are returned to the Wildwood and the mythos that Holdstock has made his own.


Winner of the BSFA Award for best novel, 1989.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Magical . . . It is rare to find a sequel which measures up to its original; but Lavondyss surpsases it - Times Literary Supplement

A stunningly good book . . . conveys the haunting power of old heroes and lost gods - Locus

His narratives - intense, exuberant, earthy, passionate, dense with metaphor - are the trails through the ancient forest of our imagination. An essential writer.

“Jake from Drakes - Bookseller Review”

This book is AMAZING! I picked up Mythago Wood (the first book in this series) mainly because of the amazing cover art for the Fantasy Masterworks series of paperbacks. I was then quickly intrigued by the mix of good... More
