Silas Umber is initiated into the haunting world of Undertakers after his father vanishes on the job, in Ari Berk's gothic trilogy that School Library Journal called "reminiscent of the classic gothic works of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Shirley Jackson."
Ari Berk is the author of the Undertaken trilogy and Nightsong, illustrated by Loren Long. He works in a library filled to the ceiling with thousands of arcane books and more than a few wondrous artifacts. When not writing, he moonlights as professor of mythology and folklore at Central Michigan University. He lives in Michigan with his wife and son. Visit him at AriBerk.com.BECOME A FAN
