Summary
On a tiny archipelago out of sight of the rest of the world lives Rory, a ten-year-old boy. He and his mother and a handful of survivors live an exhausting and precarious existence, entirely isolated. The sea is alive, and angry. Every man Rory can remember has been drowned. Everyone knows he'll be next. One night, for the first time since the world changed and the curse descended, strangers appear on the island. They're on their way to England, seeking a powerful magic ring. And one of them seems to know Rory by sight .... Caught up in their quest, Rory enters an England of terrors and marvels, at the heart of which lies a place where journeys unimaginably longer and older than his will reach their end: Pendurra

Summary
Magic has returned, Chaos has arisen, And ten-year-old Rory is the only boy left in the whole world. In his world, at least, where home is an island where there is water on all sides, and the women who are left are coping as best they can with life as it must now be lived. Then a strange threesome arrive on the island, two of them men, and Rory is drawn with them to the Mainland, where it all started, and where Rory is going to find out that the magic and adventure he has wished for when reading his comics have a darker and much more terrifying side...
