The Gormenghast Trilogy (Paperback) Mervyn Peake (author)
Recommended by Year 9 Pupils
Gormenghast is the vast, crumbling castle to which the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, is lord and heir.
Titus is expected to rule this gothic labyrinth of turrets and dungeons (and his eccentric and wayward subjects) according to strict age-old rituals, but things are changing in the castle.
Titus must contend with treachery, manipulation and murder as well as his own longing for a life beyond the castle walls.
