Can Zed outrun his past, or will the creatures of his imagination find him first?

An ordinary Christmas for Zachary “Zed” Fitztalbot quickly turns into a disaster. After accidentally causing his older sister to be struck by a car, Zed is banished to his grandmother’s newly-abandoned house in Wales. Haunted by guilt and the spooky creatures of local myth—including fearsome wolves and the demonic Red Judge—Zed embarks on an arduous journey by dogsled across the hostile winter landscape.
