The Skull Collector

Our Latest Book

After the disappearance of her parents, a heartbroken child is sold to the Doll-Maker who promises to revive them. In return, she is to travel from cemetery to cemetery, unearthing graves and collecting skulls..

While doing so, she must avoid the Violinist and his crows, who are determined to steal the skulls she has painstakingly gathered.

As she travels across the province, her life is in constant peril from vengeful policemen to furious villagers to strange creatures, the little girl must use her wits to succeed in her macabre mission.

The Skull Collector is filled with the gloomy imagery of death and despair juxtaposed by the whimsical hope a child holds for finding her missing parents.

In a world in which children are exploited, monsters are saviours, and dark magic is constantly at play, this child will go to any lengths to be reunited with her lost ones.
