As if death's cold hand gripped my neck and would not let go. Personification Summary In Crispin: At the Edge of the World, The story is told though the eyes of a young boy named Crispin. He travels with his friend and protector Bear. But, after Bear is injured, they meet a young girl named Troth who lives with a woman named Aude. After her death, Troth joins Bear and Crispin as they run away from John Bell's brotherhood. Together, they go off on an amazing adventure though England to their destination: the edge of the world. By Julian Gonzalez Recommendation I am not that much of a fan of historical fiction. Though if I did like those type of books, I probably would have loved Crispin. It has a realistic feeling to it. It is also action-packed. Like I said before, I am not that much of a fan of these types of books. And Crispin may get a bit boring at times, but all in all, it is a very good book. For those of you who like this genre, then this book is for you.
