Count Karlstein: or The Ride of the Demon Huntsman
  • Count Karlstein: or The Ride of the Demon Huntsman

  • Who would dare venture outdoors on All Souls' Eve knowing that Zamiel the Demon Huntsman is on the prowl? But evil Count Karlstein has struck a bargain with Zamiel - and his two young nieces Charlotte and Lucy stand to lose out in the pact. What can the girls do to escape their fate?

    Brilliantly informed by a variety of classic, and not so classic, sources, this tale gallops along at high speed and is a highly visual and very unusual book.
