The Silvertree stronghold is more than just the family estate of the feared and awed Silvertree dynasty whose wizardly powers and political cunning have survived through many generations. But with their power comes a curse, a curse more terrifying than rival warlords or the mystical threats of the dreaded faceless—an inward corruption of the soul that binds one’s power to a downward spiral of madness and magic.

The Stronghold goes by the name of the Silent House. It is a soul repository for this dynasty. Two daring treasure hunters hope to profit from unlocking the secrets of its past and harvesting the powers of its bounty. But unbeknownst to them, an observer watches their every move and waits to make his presence known from the halls of eternity.

Filled with sorcery and battles between the dead and the undead, as well as plots of sinister deception and insidious manipulation, The Silent House gives a sweeping overview of the world of Aglirta.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ed Greenwood is a master of fantasy adventure worldbuilding. His magic and wizardry are wondrous.”

    Margaret Weis, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Beneath all the surface action and adventure…the author subtly explores the effects of culpability and remorse. He extols ideals of heritage and courage even as he depicts often misguided individual motives with grim naturalism. This is a book as philosophically engaging as it is entertaining.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Packed with bloody battles, shape-shifting seductresses, magic-filled quests, political intrigue, and enough tentacled horrors to fill ten novels, The Silent House is Greenwood’s work to date.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “The legend of the Silvertree family comes to life in vivid detail…Each tale stands alone, yet together the stories form a cohesive whole that tells of a family curse and its surprising end.”

    Library Journal

  • “As always, Greenwood’s prose in The Silent House is elegant without being flowery…interesting and well worth the time.”
