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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mr Peake's first novel holds one with its glittering eye - It has a genuine plot in the strictest sense, and it persuades you to read on simply in order to know what will happen - its gallery of characters is wonderful" * Nation *
"A gorgeous volcanic eruption... A work of extraordinary imagination" * New Yorker *
"The Gormenghast Trilogy is one of the most important works of the imagination to come out of [this] age" -- Anthony Burgess * Spectator *
