Beowulf (Caitlin R. Kiernan)

Caitlin R. Kiernan

Blurb: Who will come to the aid of the beleaguered King Hrothgar, whose warriors have become the prey of the outcast creature Grendel?

A grand and glorious story that has endured for centuries, this classic tale of heroes, gods and monsters takes on breathtaking new life in a remarkable new version for a modern era.

Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed, award-winning author Caitlin R. Kiernan, based on the screenplay by the No. 1 bestseller Neil Gaiman and Academy Award winning screenwriter Roger Avary, it tells of a noble lord and a terrible creature who has brought death, blood and destruction to his kingdom - and of the great hero, Beowulf, who is called to a land of monsters to triumph where so many have failed...or to die as so many of the brave have before him.
