Description

A fantasy classic by the author of The House with a Clock in Its Walls -- basis for the Jack Black movie -- and "a writer who knows what wizardry is all about" (Ursula K. Le Guin).

A richly imaginative story of wizards stymied by a power beyond their control, A Face in the Frost combines the thrills of a horror novel with the inventiveness of fairy tale-inspired fantasy.

Prospero, a tall, skinny misfit of a wizard, lives in the South Kingdom -- a patchwork of feuding duchies and small manors, all loosely loyal to one figurehead king. Along with his necromancer friend Roger Bacon, who has been on a quest to find a mysterious book, Prospero must flee his home to escape ominous pursuers. Thus begins an adventure that will lead him to a grove where his old rival, Melichus, is falsely rumored to be buried and to a less-than-hospitable inn in the town of Five Dials -- and ultimately into a dangerous battle with origins in a magical glass paperweight.

Lin Carter called The Face in the Frost one of "the best fantasy novels to appear since The Lord of the Rings... Absolutely first class." With a unique blend of humor and darkness, it remains one of the most beloved tales by the Edgar Award-nominated author also known for the long-running Lewis Barnavelt series.
