In life, in death: family remains.
Silas Umber has finally come into his own as the
Undertaker of Lichport when a mysterious invitation calls
him beyond the marshes to Arvale, the ancestral manor of
Umbers. There, his extended family endures, waiting for a
living Undertaker to return and preside over the Door
an archaic rite that grants a terrible power to summon and
bind the dead in judgment.
As Silas assumes the mantle of Janus, the Watcher at
Threshold, deep below the earth in the catacombs and
towers, grim spirits grow restless at his arrival--hungry
for freedom and eager for vengeance against a family with
long history of harsh judgments. Now, Silas must right an
ancient wrong and accept that even a house of ghosts can
haunted by its past--for in matters of family, we are who
Delving deeper into the haunting world of ghosts,
ancestors, and eldritch lore, Ari Berk returns to the
that Publisher's Weekly calls "thought-provoking gothic
fantasy," with a style the School Library Journal praises
"reminiscent of the classic gothic works of Nathaniel
Hawthorne and Shirley Jackson."
