The name is Drood, Eddie Drood - and yes, I'm now the last. Recently, my family was wiped out, but I will get them back.
Eddie recently suffered a slight case of death, but thanks for Molly, his best girl (who also happens to be a powerful witch), he managed to get over that right quick. Unfortunately, his family wasn't so lucky - his family home, Drood Hall, was destroyed in his absence, and all of his relatives were killed.
He's not fond of being the Last Drood, but he soon realises that things aren't exactly as they appeared. The home wasn't destroyed; it was caught in a dimension engine, sending Drood Hall and everyone inside it into an alternate Earth, and replacing it with a burnt-out dopplegänger.
Eddie's family is out there - somewhere! - all he has to do is find them.
Live and Let Drood is the sixth title in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green's Secret History series featuring Eddie Drood.
